and unlike the previous years with the slow process of Oslo, a staged peace proposal but it permitted the developed construction of settlements in the West Bank, thus making the peace efforts almost null and void. Today, after the Wye Agreement, the Clinton 2000 Camp David proposal, the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002, the 2004 Road Map and then the Olmert peace proposal of 2008, remaining options would not be any different from these peace proposals. Both Palestinians and Israelis are not interested in further Intifadas or "escalation" of the conflict. And how would a unilateral U.N. declaration of a Palestinian state help the efforts for reconciliation between Arabs and Jews? PM Netanyahu understands all this, believe me. He's not unintelligent.
