because why hasn't this particular Israeli government initiated a proposal to the PA of borders or stopped construction of West Bank settlements? A Bar Ilan University speech and freezing construction in the West Bank, does not convey an iota of progress. Both Israeli governments led by the Labour party and Kadima party initiated peace plans. The Arab League has also initiated a peace plan in 2002 with most of the principles giving Israel a resounding acceptance with the issue of refugees being the most contentious of all. Iran also signed onto this declaration for peace. The excuses about the other side's unreadiness, genuine interest in peace or not moderate enough is simply a stalling tactic. I think the Israeli electorate will take much of this negligence into consideration for the next election in 2013.
