    .... Peace cannot be made with Hamas, Lieberman, Shas, and even part of Likud having the possibility to influence the negotiations. By now, this should be self-evident ! So, either remove them or keep them completely away, from the power to sabotage it ! That done, peace may suddenly appear possible at the end of the tunnel. Next, start with the borders. This will establish how serious the 2 sides are. Extreme requests, impossible to accept, or implement, shall not be acceptable.... THE BORDERS MUST BE REASONABLE FOR BOTH SIDES. The other things will fall in place. Even SECURITY. The role of America should be to make sure that the CONDITIONS OF NEGOTIATIONS are respected. That would be enough .....
