The Israel government is the great procrastinator of peace. It does not want "peace" for it would mean no control of resources or domination of other neighboring competitive economies. It would also mean having to abide by international law to rescind and return any land grabs it has made after 1967. NOPE, Israel want to prolong this "peace process" until the end of time, or at least until after it's left militarily subdued from going to war with Iran. Afterwards, it will be in a weaker position to negotiate. And everyone thought Arafat was the problem to peace!
