    ""You are either serious about peace, or you are not. Israel is not. It will not even say wether it will negotiate based in the Saudi initiative. It will not put forward its own initiative in reply. It is not serious about peace."" The Saudi so called initiative wants Israel to withdraw behind the pre-1967 cease fire AND apply the UN resolution 194 which means in no uncertain terms that ALL refugees and their families have the right to return to Israel. Let's look at this proposal shall we? So 5 mil Arabs can come back to Israel a country with a Jewish population of...5 mil. Where are they going to settle?Who's going to provide jobs,education,infrastructure,health and age care for them?Unless...of course:get rid of the Jews and you solved the problem.Solve the Palestinian refugee problem by creating a Jewish refugee problem.Only 10 times bigger...That's what you call a serious peace proposal.War and the status-quo seem a lot better than such "peace" for Israel Johnboy
