    Look. It is simople. The Palestinians are clear in their just demands. They coincide with the position of the entire international community regarding the illegal settlements and take over of East Jerusalem. Nothing new there. Israel's position is not as clearly stated or detailed. All netanyahu says is Israel is panting to start open and direct negotiatons with no preconditions? Is this true? What indications do we see on the ground? What do we see Israel implementing which might be a confidence builder? Very little indeed. Nothing really beyond a minor cosmetic shift here and there. As for preconditions? Even less. We will certainly see an end to the temporary freez come Sept 27, we will see more property taken in EJ and more residents dispossessed there, we will see more "natural growth" and we will see movement in dividing the north WB from the south, with more settlement growth and dispossession in the south Hebron region. We will see a firm committment made to remain in the Jordan Valley. So what will be left. netanyahu defies, does not compromise. He has had far too many chances and has acted like a swaggering bully everytime. This time is no different.
