    "What has President Abbas done this year exactly to advance talks?" He's stuck on, "We've done enough already." He's not offering anything at all. Peace? That's a vaguery. What kind of current step toward peace will he bother to make? Israel's critics have constantly opined that no progress will be made with Netanyahu. Meanwhile, he's made the largest concession on building. Why won't Abbas put it to the test? Why do Israel's critics encourage intransigence from the Palestinians and concessions from Israel? Their idea of "peace," is constant Israeli capitulation to intransigent demands. "The Palestinians have given enough?" That's what "PEACE" is about? A refusal to give anything in the present? If that's their position, they're not talking about peace. The Palestinians can't "offer" 100% of the territories for a number of reasons, including 1) It's never been 100% theirs. 2) How are they going to "give" something that's never been theirs and that they don't even control?
