    The negotiations have always failed with the PA or PLO walks out and declares the negotiations over. Israel sits there at a table with no one left to talk to. Tell, does it sound like the PA is serious? Let's look at Abbas's speech this week. He said they have suffered the occupation for 63 years. ??? Excuse me, think abou that for a minute. That's 1948. They were occupied by Jordan until 1967. What occupation is he referring to? Oh right, when Jewish people decided to form a nation on territory that was once muslim land... That is the occupation. Non-muslim's occupying muslim land is forbidden in Islam. So, what is their solution? you guessed it, get rid of the occupiers, not negotiations. This is why the negotiations always failed. They are always looking for a excuse to walk out, which they do every time. I wish some secular leaders would finally lead them and then there would be peace.
