It would be helpful to expose whether either side is willing to take the basic steps necessary while removing the suspicion and excuses that hide what are each side's real intention. To do this the quartet should ask for a simultaneous agreement along the following lines: 1) The Palestinianas accept Israel as the nation state of the Jewish People. 2) Israel accepts a Palestinian State on borders approximate to the 67 borders with changes based on mutually agreed land swaps. These are the most minimum requirements of even the most "moderate" on each side. Remove the suspicions and excuses and find out whether there is any chance for peace agreeement. The time to remove the masks is NOW!
