    It's up to Israel to decide what it wants, not the palestinians. It's up to Israel to decide whether it's going to leave the territories and therefore recognize a palestinian state. What's left today ? less than 22% for the palestinians. Israel controls the Jordan Valley (ie 60% of the WB). The palestinians do not have a contigueous state with more than a hundred settlements all over the WB, do not have a border with Jordan, do not have priority access to water, are not allowed to settle where they want, are refused access to Gaza...etc....How is peace possible ? and you want the palestinians to make concessions, to compromise ? Israel keeps that conflict going and going. Building in the territories keeps the hatre and frustration alive. Don't tell us Israel does not know that. And as long as Israel has military power, this is can carry for another 100 years. Israel has the keys of peace.
