It's ridiculous. Israel is asking to be paid to obey international law! "reach a deal"!! How is that negotiating? Palestinians are expected to give up so much real stuff, and the Israelis talk about agreeing to stop expanding the illegal settlements for 90 days! It is ridiculous. It's like me punching someone in the face and "reaching a deal" with the authorities to cease punching him in the face for a moment or two so long as he gives me half of the money in his wallet. It is ridiculous.
