Netanyahu has NOT stated 'exactly what he`s willing to do'. He's only said what he WON'T do - no negotiation on right of return, no negotiation on Jerusalem, no settlement freeze, no Hamas involvement. And set a new list of preconditions for what he wants OTHERS to do - concentrate on building their economy, agree to have no army, cede sovereignty over airspace, stop incitement, recognise Israel as an ethnic state, take the Goldstone report off the desk, etc., etc. You will search in vain for even ONE thing that Netanyahu has said HE OR ISRAEL will do to help facilitate peace talks. Other than his grudging mention, between clenched teeth, of a 2-state solution, when forced to do so by the US at pistol point. Prove me wrong. Tell me ONE single tangible constructive thing that Netanyahu has put forward. Don't worry if you can't, no one else can either. But if you can't, it means Mr Stenger is about right and you are daydreaming.
