    - as usual. what you guys don't see /at least fail to mention is that the testing now will be sharp & indeed merciless on both camps' positions. both camps have difficult barriers & issues to deal with, issues that have followed this process from day one & have become clearer over time. if these talks ever lead to direct ones this is going to become obvious to everybody caring to read the news, including you guys. it was never just one side that held back & had some real mountains to climb w/reg. to the necessary choices leading to a real settlement of the conflict. this last year's 'intransigent' israeli position hasn't changed this fact. basically it's only been about different paths to the direct negotiating table, securing whatever each camp regards as its most crucial interests. the rest is mostly appearances, not denying the fact that real obstacles & intransigence exist in both camps. you've been concentrating on the trouble in 1 camp only plus the appearances.
