    Akiva reminds us that the Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss and opportunity - and in the same vain never misses an opportunity to find fault in any gesture by the center-right. Invite Tzipi ?? like Ilan Peppe he likes to re-write history - Netanyahu tried to form a center-left government - It was Tzipi (against the advise of many in her party) that said she will not act as a fig leaf - but then let not history stand in the way of Akiva criticizing Netanyahu. It takes two to tango - abbas could have surprised if he wanted too (the same as Hamas could have - after withdrawl - to take 1 year off to better the conditions of Gaza people and to demonstrate leadership and benefits of withdrawl -but again no surprises there). Akiva is very selective how governments should be bound by non-existent agreements of previous governments (as long as they meet his approval -left of left). Barak Offered, Yasser rejected but then the Barak offer is the basis of the next discussion ....
