Once again let's find someone else who will excuse the Palestinians from stepping up to the plate. Even if all the things you allege about Peres are true (and I doubt it)the bottom line is that Peres is not the one to negotiate - it is the Palestinians who refuse. They only want negotiatins for show - with all the issues predetermined, but, of course, with no preconditions. We are all witnesses to once again the Palestinians missing an opportunity and passing the buck through the Akiva Eldar's of the world.
