What twaddle. Abbas is not as stupid as Netanyahu and Barak think the public is. The government of Israel has no intention of serious negotiation or even a good faith freeze while negotiations go on. See: 'Israel okays four new Jewish residences in East Jerusalem' in today's Haaretz online. Netanyahu has thrown the last chance to negotiate with Abbas away. There is not the slightest credible evidence Netanyahu wanted any serious negotiations. Or peace for that matter. His goal remains that of Likud. All of Judea and Samaria without Arabs included.
