    To every offer of peace negotiations, Israel replies with some precondition(s). Good technique to say yes, but, and then not negotiate. Here is some list. PALESTINIANS: 1. Israel demands the Quartet's preconditions. By now, the Quartet does not demand that they be fulfilled explicitly, just that the government's policy should "reflect" them. Israel insists on explicit fulfillment. 2. Shalit has to be released before peace talks. (Nice way to avoid talks. Israel doesn't pay the price for Shalit and then no talks.) 3. Cease fire in Gaza and no suicide bombers. Of course, Israel reserves the right to attack Pals in the West Bank, and they respond from Gaza. Let them not response. SYRIA: 1. Syria has to stop supporting Hizballah and other terrorists first. (Syria is first supposed to give up its best means of pressuring Israel, then we will talk.) Some cease fire agreement would be better. DAUDI PLAN: 1. First remove the refugee clause. This is impossible for the Palestinians. They are willing to negotiate it away, but in return for something.
