Bibi's coalition cannot extend the “new settlement expansion freeze” without being in direct negotiation with the pals... If he tried to extend it past the 10 month limit, you would see elections...(which is not good due to Israel’s tendency to become more conservative when its threatened which would mean more power to Lieberman and shas)... If the pals really want a two state solution in the next two years then they have to sit down and talk face to face... Menachem Begin, a known terrorist (during British mandate) made peace with Egypt... How can Abbas know he does not have a peace partner if he is not willing to sit down and talk with Bibi?
