    Surely you have seen the map of the West Bank and how the land offered to Palestinians has shrunk beyond recognition (67 borders forget it).(and Israel refuses to even discuss future borders) Does it occur to you that proper negotiations should take place between two parties with equal power and ability to satisfy each party's needs? Does Abbas have equal power to the various Israeli negotiators? People like you always ignore the nonstop house demolitions and land stealing that has been a constant throughout the "so called" peace talks which are really only ever an Israeli facade to ongoing land stealing. The Israeli position is so hypocritical I can hardly believe it. Having recently visited Israel and the West Bank I cried buckets of tears when I saw that the fair minded liberal Jewish atmosphere I grew up in (the child of Austrian holocaust survivors)had become a crowd of arrogant bigots who only wanted to annihilate and expel anyone whose world view and religion differed from theirs. How can Abbas negotiate on an equal footing when his people, who have land titles spanning generations and where the Palestinian diaspora are not permitted to return to the lands owned and farmed by their fathers and mothers , yet I, whose ancestors have absolutely no connection with Israel or its neighbouring territories can decide tomorrow to return there in absolute freedom and am welcomed with open arms. How long will your "hasbara" hide the real story?
