Neither side wants peace. Comprimise would change the borders and routines and values. this way they each can proclaim maiximalist fantasy positions and not have to bother about that annoying thing called reality. the big issues are not the settlements. 4 million palestinian refugees and their descendants want to return to lod and ramle, jerusalem and countless villages since plowed under. it ain't gonna happen. so it's better not to talk and blame the other guy than attempt to solve the unsolveable. call me a pessimist. it's reality..
