"However, Barak also said that "it must be sufficiently general, so Israelis do not feel like they are suckers who have made substantive concessions on core issues without receiving anything in return." With the border set at the 1967 lines, Israel already claims more land than she had in 1948, illegitimate land that she acquired by force of arms. After what Israel has done to Palestinians, She deserves nothing in exchange for substantive concessions. What the world wants is for Israel to renounce her warlike attitude and to relinquish land that she has seized. Barak's desired generalities simply prolong Israel's possesion of territory that is not hers. Israel deserves nothing in return for peace in the Middle East. If anything she should pay reparations to those she has wronged. My heart bleeds profusely for Israelis who feel that they are being suckered! Can't you hear the drip, drip, drip?
