    If he is serious then he better convince Abbas to negotiate cuss if they go threw with their unilateral plans they can say goodbye to ever getting one inch of Jerusalem... Think about it Unilateral actions by the Pals will only lead to Unilateral actions by Israel... The pals want a home... fine but the size of this home will be on Israels terms... Play your cards right and you get to share Jerusalem and get 95-98% of the west bank... Play your cards wrong and bibi will inact disengagement part II which will leave no Jerusalem and only parts a and b in Palestinian hands... If you want a true peace then we must create parameters for the day that there is an independent Palestine that there will be just as many Israelis celebrating as there are Pals... Otherwise the birth of Palestine will be stillborn...
