    You write: If Israel made an initial offer to the Pals, at least it could serve as a basis for negotiation, but Israel won`t even go that far. Israel has made much more than an inital offer. Camp David 2000 - Ehud Barak offered Arafat 95% of the WB, 5% of the (Israeli) Negev, a connecting passage between what was then Fatah-run Gaza and the WB, and so on and so on. Arafat walked away without making a counter offer and launched Intifada #2, during which Palestinian terrorists murdered, maimed and destroyed the lives of 1000s of Israelis. Fast forward to 2009 and PM Olmert who took Barak's offer, added some inducements of his own (Jerusalem, refugees)and tried to reach an agreement with Abbas. And what was the response? Abbas claimed that the gap between the two sides was too wide. He didn't even bother to make a counter-offer. So that would kinda make nonsense of your statement wouldn't it. How about removing some blinkers and looking at reality. Or do you hate Israel too much?
