Israel must be a nation of propagandists. At Camp David Barak offered 61% of occupied territories and refused use of maps; strategic roads to be used only by Israelis; continued control of all borders; all Palestine external trade to go thru Israel; large settlement areas and East Jerusalem to be retained by Israel, including 250 sq kilometers adjacent to East Jerusalem. The offer was take it or leave it. Olmert's 2009 peace offer was not turned down by Abbas. In fact, Abbas said with that offer(93%of West Bank and Gaza) "we can have peace in 2 days." The Quartet agreed and requested Israel make the offer binding. It never did. Livni told Abbas and the Americans the offer should absolutely not be signed. Olmert was under indictment. Why dont you stop pretending you have on blinkers and explain to your readers the truth about the Israeli occupation being in violation of 3 UN resolutions and 3 articles of the 4th Geneva Convention, and therefore in commission of a war crime.
