It's unknown what the Netanyahu coalition will related during the U.S. Congress speech but given the impasse in peace talks, which is also due to Israel's intransigence on the issue of 1967 borders, East Jerusalem and continuing settlements development, on the Palestinian side of the factions unwilling to accept the 3 conditions of the Quartet, is the clincher to the disappointing developments. It's highly unlikely that under Netanyahu's watch that he would even contemplate negotiating with the PA who are now affiliated legally to a terror organization. A future democratic vote for the Palestinians could ring in a government a la Syria now, next door to Israel. Another factor contributing to the problems in the ME is the current intelligence found on Al-Queda's goals, vis a vis the Jewish State, and attributing the Hamas and IJ organizations as no different. This is a legitimate fear. So there's 2 things here: (1) Netanyahu's Likud will never deal with Hamas even indirectly (2) The PA might be ready for a Palestinian State but their associates are determining the outcome of lack of progress towards implementation. In my opinion, the Palestinians do deserve to hear what this Israeli coalition government will concede, as every other Israeli government did, towards the Palestinians for peace - this is the minimum that PM Netanyahu has to articulate in U.S. Congress - borders, E. Jerusalem and minimal number of refugees ROR while majority compensated. Having neglected doing this for decades now, the conflict has perpetuated over time, which is undeserving for both peoples.
