    What more proof does the world need to understand that Netanyahu wants no peace? All Netanyahu and his government are interested in is to buy time with fake promises of genuine peace talk, evasive excuses and a never ending list of new demands, while speeding up illegal construction in West Bank and East Jerusalem. If this is allowed to continue, the world will eventually find itself presiding over a buffoonish peace talk, with Israel having completed illegal construction over virtually the whole of East Jerusalem and the West Bank, and the Palestinians left with almost no land to build a viable state on.
