No excuses. And sorry, Miggy: regrettably the Palestinians are those who don't want to negotiate up till now, not Israel. Hamas should make some goodwill gesture if it wants an agreement and free movement: release Shalit, recognize Israel's right to exist, stop the terror attacks and the propaganda. Don't you agree?
