    Israel always claims it wants peace. Show us the money? Israel negotiates about land , in the meantime building in it illegally , confiscating it for exclusive use of Jewish settlers. Israel speaks about painful decisions yet never define what the painful decisions are. Israelis insist that they have the right to settle anywhere , yet they demand the transfer of Israeli citizens who happen to be of Palestinian origin. Israel denies the right of return to Palestinians but grants right of return to anyone who claims his grandmother made Matzo Balls. They claim they accepted the partition plan , but now call the 1967 borders, within which Israel grabbed more land than allotted by the UN partition plan , Auschwitz borders. In other words they had expansionist designs from the start and never gave up the claim for larger Israel , a claim that contradicts Israel had ever accepted a partition plan to start with. Till Israel starts accepting and reversing those facts , Israel is right , that the Palestinians would reject such peace. On the other hand , the Palestinians and the Arabs had offered a concrete , defined and specific peace plan. Israel wants etherial things like stopping incitement , as if love can be legislated on either side.Where is Israel's peace plan?
