You wrote: "History will not forgive those who considered the issue of extending the construction moratorium in the settlements, even for three months, more important than continuing the talks and reaching a diplomatic solution."

If he were actually interested in the historic opportunity to establish a Palestinian state, he would be running to negotiate without preconditions.
