I can follow you a long way, and I agree for a very big part, but most important is that ANY negotiations take place at an equal level. Israel does not need to stress its superior position; it is superior. This implies some humility. But you are right: take it apart and try to solve each others problems be it economy, security, housing, borders, waste, whatever and call it whatever you like. But not wanting peace sounds too cynical to me. As long as you call peace the abcense of war, a lot has been accomplished already and we should try not to slide backwards, which means: restrain yourself and act in a responsable way. I think this can be one wondeful and safe country. One.
