"in order to tone down tensions and anger, and improve Israel's diplomatic standing" means "so people think we're the good guys" - As history has shown, Israel does not believe in peace talks. They participate in them as a show of good faith while utilizing the efforts to buy more time to expand settlements and grab more land. Israel won't stop until the Palestinian people have been exterminated from the lands they believe to be their god's gift to them. As the only state based on racial segregation and wishing racial exclusivity, Israel has managed to convince the world that their kind of racism is actually fine. lol.
