First of all, I am glad that two people with opposing points of view can have a respectful discussion for once. Unfortunately most people on these blogs hurl insults at one another instead of listening to what each has to say. My impression of the Arab League proposal, and the Palestinian demands, is that neither is willing to give up on the right of return for Palestinian refugees. As I recall, the dispute is not over territory or even compromising on Jerusalem. If that were the issue, there would have been peace already. The problem is that the Arabs do not want to give up on right of return, which would end Israel as Israel. Even Yossi Sarid, who is quite left-wing, was against giving up on right of return, because he said he is willing to make peace, but not at the expense of cutting one's own throat.
