    Netanyahu yet again put's paid to his open call for "negotiations without pre-conditions' by openly accepting the plan then demanding a list of changes (not 'pre conditions' of course, 'positions'). This thoroughly dishonest word play coupled with in-your-face announcements like the Gilo expansion prove that peace via negotiation is not possible unless it involves the Palestinians either giving in and living in increasingly small numbers in pens at a zoo ....or just fading away over the horizon. The UK initially (in the years since '47) and the US since '67 are directly responsible for Israel's bloody minded mendacity and inability to negotiate in good faith. They have indeed been rewarded for it. They must be co-defendants in any future ICC/ICJ hearings. The UN needs to solve this fast and completely or there will be war and yes, I know many israeli's want this (for the wrong reasons) but it is clear once the west's influence is shredded, this may well turn into a conflict that noone expects.
