I've never heard so many excuses for refusing to negotiate (eg. Hamas is a terrorist organisation and doesn't recognise Israel, Abbas is weak, Arafat is corrupt). Even if a Palestinian Gandhi or Mother Teresa arose, Israel would still refuse to negotiate. The REAL REASON Israel does not want to negotiate is because at Camp David and Taba - Israel realised just how much it would have to give up to sign a peace deal with the Palestinians - hence making up excuses to avoid negotiating and making sacrifices that Israel is not prepared for (i.e. Palestinian sovereignty in E Jlem, most of the settlements including Ariel and Hebron being evacuated and no annexing the Jordan valley).
