    Israel wants peace? How so? Let's see, ever since Mahmoud Abbas got into office what's happened? We had a summit at Sharm al Sheikh and both Abbas and Sharon outlined their hopes. Let's see, Abbas has been able to do something even Israel's military power hasn't done which is co-opt Palestinian militants into getting involved in the PA, rather than continue violence (Note, the Knesset has right wing extremist members who advocate expulsion of Palestinians or "transfer", therefore it's a double standard if you don't expect the Palestinians not to have their right wing). Abbas has managed to retire numerous Fatah members of the old guard. Abbas has promised his people, he'd never enter an agreement without completing a referrendum with the Palestinian community, something Arafat compromised almost signing a peace deal without the Palestinian people consent. Now, Israel continues to build the wall. They continue violating people's human and civil rights. They continue building settlements, trying to make it near impossible for any viable Palestinian state to exist, connected to East Jerusalem. Reality is no matter how many obstacles are placed in front of the Palestinians, a concentration wall, etc, they will never leave. Get over it. Try suffocating them, they'll remain. They're perseverant people. Israel will never obliterate the question of Palestinian independence. I think the Masada complex suffered by many of the paranoid Israeli leaders will show, that such a mindset is not conducive to peace. Stop being selfish. Peace in Jerusalem, equals peace in the Middle East, equals prosperity for both people. :) Take care, salam and shalom
