    In 1970 Egypt offered peace with the Israelis for the return of land. It said NOTHING about the Palestinians. This offer was rejected in favor of expansion (to keep Sinai). What is known as Kissinger's 'stalemate'. After the Yom Kippur failure for Egypt In 1976 the offer was made again but this time mentioning resolutions 242 and 338. Things had developed by then and Israel negotiated peace with Egypt. Now I know you're talking about the Palestinians but look at how many resolutions were vetoed by the US & Israel but not rejected by the PLO. So Israel might be making statements of peace infront of the camera but look at what they actually DO (build a wall that intersects the WB, impose the occupation on a whole population which no one would ever submit to....among other indications of opposing peace & a Palestinian state). Also the Gaza pullout was simultaneously announed with a 'convergence plan' in the WB (Look at what that meant & how it is inevitably percieved by the Palestinians).
