Israel uses negotiations to continue the illeagal Settlement expansion. The Paklestinians have finally figured that out so they might as well not waste their time. Better to wait for the Bi National State and put Israeli Jews in the lower seat and show them they are willing to negotiate until the cows come home. As said before psm--Israel has never/does not and never wuill be interested in peace. You know that---why do you not just admit it???. Here is some interesting feedback about one of Israel,s demands--recognition of a Jewish State. Enjoy "In 1919 the General Secretary (and future President) of the Zionist Organization, Nahum Sokolow, published a History of Zionism (1600-1918). He also represented the Zionist Organization at the Paris Peace Conference. He explained: The object of Zionism is to establish for the Jewish people a home in Palestine secured by public law." ... ...It has been said and is still being obstinately repeated by anti-Zionists again and again, that Zionism aims at the creation of an independent "Jewish State" But this is wholly fallacious. The "Jewish State" was never part of the Zionist programme. The Jewish State was the title of Herzl's first pamphlet, which had the supreme merit of forcing people to think. This pamphlet was followed by the first Zionist Congress, which accepted the Basle programme - the only programme in existence.
