    land confiscation, sanctions and expanding settlements just to name a few. Israel doesn't even bother to extend an olive branch or maybe I missed something Lieberman/Netanyahoo said or offered to the contrary? Let's get serious, let the Palestinians have their stones? Can we agree on that? Now as for negotiations, who is kidding who, it will be a dark day when Israel is brought to the negotiating table. Netanyahoo came to this kicking and screaming and because he was forced into it by the Americans - no surprise he has been igniting the situation with one provocation after another - like there is any shortage of those - but he can announce all he wants regarding Hebron as being part of "Jewish heritage" places (something ridiculous to that effect) but when you start pouring gasoline in Jerusalem - working towards inflaming that hot button issue with provocative actions - moving settlers there or worse, as surely he knows what happened back in 1996 when he ignited the riots that left hundreds dead in a few days when he started to dig under the Al-Aqsa mosque and I'm sure he knows what followed when Sharon made his infamous march towards the mosque - and so we are left with a repeat of a bad B movie. Here we go again, Zionists don't want to negotiate, watch them use the nuclear option - take provocative actions in Jerusalem. A cursed city if there ever was one.
