" an "offer to negotiate" is always going to be "take-it-or-leave-it"." No, imbecile, it's not. "As in: THIS is what I want to negotiate about, so do you agree to negotiate on THIS basis, or don`t you? The answer is one of either: (a) Yes or (b) No." Small brain can't think of any other answer? How about this? (c) While we appreciate your offer to negotiate on "THIS" basis, the issues are very complex and we think we can improve upon your basis. Additionally, we seek clarification about some of the issues you raise. Are you willing to discuss amending your basis and providing us with clarifications so we can enter negotiations? Your vapid thought processes are stunted. "What Israel wants to do is to REWRITE THE OFFER as a pre-condition for it agreeding to enter into NEGOTIATIONS." Israel wants to DISCUSS the offer and if the two parties agree to a mutually beneficial basis for negotiations -- proceed. Offers can either be negotiable, or not. The Saudis made it NOT, putz.
