    It is a question of substance and Israel's position is clear. 1. netanyahu has never been and is not interested in a two state solution. He has been evasive in his language;those of his coalition have not. They have openly expressed their opposition to the formation of a Palestinian state.. 2. The "freeze" Israel claims to have been in effect for 10 months was never total and building has gone on during this period, as Peace Now has proven. 3. The majority of Israelis have become complacent with the status quo as more of them move into the occupied territories. 4. The colonists have already defied netanyahu's public call for restraint. Resumption in Revava andMK Danon prove that along with the colonists defying Obama and once again publically ridiculing and embarrassing the US. 5.Israel has proven it desires land over peace and is not serious about the formation of a Palestinian state. Perhaps autonomous urban centers surrounded by for Jews only colonies, but no independence. 6. Let Palestine declare independence within the borders June 6, 1967. Accept the fact that nothing but an economic boycott will work to bring Israel to its senses. It stands now where apartheid South Africa satood, defiant and scoffing of international opinion. It must be treated as the pariah it has become. Israel has proven that a two state solution is no longer possible. A one state solution is the only viale otion as zionism has become more and more an apartheid movement .l
