Yeh, right, Israel is willing to negotiate immediately with no preconditions and it longs for peace and on and on ad nauseum. Look at the record, and place it next to the propganda that Israel trots out every time the Palestinians have the upper hand. Ever since Oslo Accords of 1993, Israel has used the time during which it was involved in "negotiations" for further expansionism. Ehud Barak was the king of this tactic. They agree to sit down and wast time talking when their real intention is to use it as a cover for building more settlements and expanding those already standing by employing their favourite euphemism: "natural growth". Mr. Abbas: do not believe them, do not trust them. Go to the Security Council and show Israel and its lackey, the rubber stamping US, that though negotiatins, real negotiations are now needed, they will no longer be controlled by only US and Israel interests but by those of the international community who will have a say in determining the outcome of this all too long occupation and independence for a viable and contiguous state of Palestine.
