Logios.. I appreciate the explanation and your pizza analogy does have merit. However, the Road Map is brought up as a key point and is often referenced. It is used as a claim as part of the path. Since you are citing the first phase of the plan and the settlement freeze then the Road Map does indeed matter in this conversation. The settlement freeze was based on a peace agreement. Maybe if the Pals would show some interest in accepting a) Israel's right to exist, b) the ability to negotiate without demanding that they get everything they want might be helpful. The Pals have never shown that they are willing to compromise for the benefit of their own people or to have their own state. Direct talks would be the easiest way to get this started. Why would Abbas not engage in direct talks?.. because he does not have the ability to make peace.
