I would like to sympathize with the Palestinians but how are THEY, the STATELESS making ultimatum demands to Israel who has a state. Why is Netanyahu begging Abbas to negotiate? This makes no sense. Any logical individual will agree that it should be Abbas who is eager to negotiate! Abbas is in NO POSITION to make preconditions and is clearly not interested in peace - as demonstrated by his refusal of Olmerts 2008 proposal. Shame on Abbas.
