"Seigman cannot claim Israel had no peaceful intentions." (peter sm) Yes he can. He does it every day. Some days, even six times before breakfast. My own opinion is that, as things stand today, if the current Israeli leadership has peaceful intentions, it still has to clearly show it. Keeping construction in an area outside Israel's sovereignty, and whose status is subject to negotiation, is not the best way, to say the least, to convince anyone. "Quoting Sharon as representative of Israeli views past, present and future, that is dishonest!

I am not aware of anyone having done that. Surely you are inventing. Once more.
