    1 ) Israel offers ??? Israel controls a big portion of land that has no right to control in the first place and has to give it back ( no offers) if it wants to be respected and fully recognized by the countries of the civilized world 2) If the Palestinians mustn't declare unilaterally their statehood the Israeli Leadership sure can't unilaterally decide what the borders of a another nation will be. That's what the old colonial nations used to do until mid 20th century in order to oppress People from different origins ( I know what I'm talking about as my country was a Colonial coutry and I'm not proud of it). Apparently Israel wants to be one of the few Oppressors in the 21th century 2 - " also paint the Palestinians as having yet again missed an opportunity to reach an agreement." Is Israel aware that this time the ball game may be quite different ??? Abbas has the recognition of the civilized world that Arafat lost and at the UN a very damaging resolution to Israel interests has a real chance of being approved this time ( the fact that the US is isolated at the UNSC in this matter proves it). On the other hand, most countries won't criticize the Palestinians for not accepting the leftovers the extreme right wing Israel leadership wants to impose on them ( in particular if one compares with other proposals Israel made in the past which could be regarded as serious propositions). 3 - Netanyahu does not want to pay the price in the form of territory or dismantling settlements ??? So He, and Israel for that matter, are not serious about making real peace.
