Bibi: "Why must we pay for the right to sit with somebody?" Becasue you are being asked to pay for something that Israel agreed to buy in 2003, Bibi. Sticking to the terms of a contract ain't much of a "demand", is it now... Bibi: "It's absurd. It's unacceptable." It is a "prior agreement", Bibi. Israel is *supposed* to be very keen on such thing. Well, they are, unless it is inconvenient to Bibi.... at which point it becomes an "absurd demand". Bibi: "This is no peace process." Looking in the mirror again, are you, buddy-boy? Bibi appears to think that being asked to abide by a "prior agreement" is utterly "absurd". At which point, of course, you have to ask yourself what is the point of negotiating any "new agreement" with such a gentleman?
