Its time for us to get real. Confronting reality is tough but its the only way to move forward. Anyway, what did Abbas say? That he will negotiate with the only person he can negotiate with and that there will be no negotiations without a stoppage of settlement construction? Actually, I don't even know why this latter point is such a big deal. What is a big deal to me is peace, a viable state with a land mass that is fair, some degree of sovereign control over Jerusalem and the opportunity to build an economy that can provide hope, security and safety for our children.
