It appears that we have entered a phase that could be called "negotiation by press conference". All in all, it may not be a bad way to approach the problem. Keeping Jerusalem as an undivided city and not turning it into an new Berlin has a certain appeal to the market of US public opinion and possibly in Europe. The real victory for Israel might be in manuvering the palestinian leadership to declare a state in the west bank that, de facto, does not include gaza nor any part of Jerusalem. The separation of palestine into three states with an undivided Jerusalem being included in the zionist portion is probably the ultimate goal of this israeli government.
