This seems a reasonable set of statements, and the comments that have coalesced around the article mirror the examples given in a way that is both ironic and just a little disconcerting. I agree with the premise that any way forward, in any negotiation, requires that such misrepresentations are addressed and then set aside in favour of a future that neither side may actually be ready to believe in. I have one friend here, emigre from Palestine, who insists that the single stumbling block is right of return, and he insists that, because of that, there is no way forward. I guess it's tantamount to a life sentence of conflict and insecurity for everyone ever born there until the end of time. Which is utterly ridiculous.
