He will not negotiate with the PA because it does not represent all Palestinians, yet a reconciliation will partially admit Hamas to power, whom he does not recognize or deal with. He will not negotiate with the PA because its mandate has run out and it is not democratically elected, but elections cannot be held without the participation of Gaza, and therefore he will not negotiate anyway. What negotiations is he talking about leaves me a little at a loss. The moribund negotiations brokered by the Americans which died a premature death at his hands? The diminutive peace plan he intends to present to Congress, which has already been rejected by the Arabs and the European Five? If he thinks he can dictate the terms of peace ("You can't have peace with Hamas and with Israel") then why is he going to Paris and London uninvited?
