    And Israel has its own demands and conditions, and this is the reason why negotiations should take place. You can't call your list of demands for peace "a peace initiative" and when the other rejects it (because it doesn't agree to your demands) say that the other is against peace. In addition, the Arab leaders in that initiative - where are they now? Either berried, or in jail, or fighting for their survival. Imagine Israel would make peace with them, what would this peace be worth now?
