The Israelis have been wlling to sit with the West Bank Arabs and discuss how the Arabs would manage the West Bank territory but would want a military presence and at least some of the settlements to remain. The Arabs can scream, jump up and down and waste their breath on the UN but nothing will happen untill they sit down with Israel to disuss the arrangements. The UN is not going to dictate to Israel.. Abbas desperately does not want to discuss peace with Israel since he has few bargaining chips other than what he thinks the UN can provide.. This game will contine ad infinitum since the UN is a charade.
