The author forwards 'reasonable' arguments for extending the 'moratorium', but he ignores the unreasonableness of the moratorium itself. Almost a year of near-moratorium was a dud, and treading in place is a regression, assuring that the extension of a dud will guarantee it will be a dud itself. The a-priori insistence on not dividing Jerusalem and keeping a 'temporary' force in the Jordan valley are non-starters. The PM has not produced a border map of HIS liking and he id loath to offer one fearing he would be laughed out of the room. I agree that the US is much to blame for but it is not their country and they can continue to play the duplicitous game to comport with the wishes of the pro Israel Congress and K street. The Israeli electorate did not vote for Benjamin Netanyahu to take them to the Promised Land. Tzipi Livni received the (slim) majority of the votes, and it was Peres who entrusted B.N to cobble a coalition knowing full well where it was heading. The die had been cast. This government will not sit with the Palestinian and negotiate an agreement which is equitable. It cannot and will not happen.
