    they're really at square one in negotiating that state despite this practically unanimous diplomatic global support, and that is to prove that they indeed do seek coexistence with the Jewish State of Israel. The U.N. will not renege on the existence or security of the modern Jewish State since its inception in 1948. Outside the PA, the violent terror by the factions and no consensus with the Quartet's 3 conditions will not permit a final peace agreement on the core issues. This U.N. exercise is a positive gesture but the real disturbing aspect of the ME conflict is that the minority extremists who defy President Abbas are ruining any progress. It's a greater concern than the settlements issue in the West Bank because the consensus from Israel is the recognition of two states side by side, but not from the Palestinian side. This is the dilemma to resolve along with the Palestinian state's recognition.
