    Saying Bibi blabbed this on Fox and Friends or whereever does not cover the tab. Without peace there will be blood and pain. Achieving peace will take discourse. Not monologue to American press. One of my biggest problems with Israel is its fondness of saying "we tried that and it didn't work - no point considering that again". There is a barrier of distrust built by many, many hostile acts. This runs both ways. Breaking it will take a lot of magnanimity and perseverance, not try once and give up. As for nothing to gain, look at how the rest of the world views Israel today. This is not some crazy PR coupe by the Palestinians, this is a lot of "shoot first ask questions later", "pity us we're the victims", and "we're entitled to shed any amount of blood for our security" while neglecting to blame massive theft and aggression by some very nasty setttlers. Israel needs to own up to a lot of hypocrisy about being a most moral army or nation, while shedding a lot of innocent blood. Then it would have something reasonable to talk about.
