If you cut to the chase, Netenyahu's government does not believe in peace. They would cut down on settlements to appease the U.S., but the major cost that Israel would pay by freezing them altogether for, say, six months, is that it would start serious negotiations. Israel's right wing government prefers a poisen pill that ensures no negotiations will start over having to dance around negotiations over which it is not serious. For Stenger to conclude that Bibi has no policy is silly. Of course he has a policy, and the two state solution is not part of it. The ironic thing is that Palastinians are no more serious than Bibi. If Netanyahu's government froze settlements for six months and offered a deal that was something like the Geneva accords, the Palastinains would find a way to torpedo it just as they did Camp David. Of course, then Israel would have the high ground, and while the high ground is irrelevent to Israel bashers, it is not irrelvent to Obama or to the EU.
