Why should the Palestinians fail? To have their own statehood is also Israels goal. Unless they get confused with the time 4000 years ago. Israel has so far shown no intentions to negotiate, otherwise they would have stopped the settlements a long timne ago. Netanyahu & Co, why don't you do something about what testifies your emphaty, compassion and urge for two people being able to live together. It is a funny logic. Israel is taking the land of the Palestinians and feels threatened and claim moreover the land is theirs. This must be the reason for referring to the 4000 years. So, what rights do the Palestinians have?
