    What if Israel was honest with itself and America? What if Bibi stopped whining about really wanting peace despite a year of doing everything he could to prevent it, he changed tactics? What if he simply told the world that there would be no Palestinian state? That peace could only happen when Israel annexes a Judea and Samaria void of Palestinians? The USA would have no reply. At least we would be able to tell the world that there is nothing that anyone can do to get peace talks going. Our 'demand' is that Israel do what it keeps saying it wants to do. Talk about a two state solution, negotiate a peace acceptable to all. Our dilemma is that Israel says it wants something and then does everything it can to prevent it. If Israel will be honest with itself and the world, our 'demands' will evaporate because our 'demands' are based only upon Israel's lies.
