We know what the Palestinians consider fair: Israel's agreement to all their demands without making any peace agreement binding and without agreeing that there will be no more demands. A "fair" agreement would have to be one that neither side is happy with, but which both sides can live with. Israel has already offered the PA almost all it demanded, not once, but twice-- once in 2000 by Ehud Barak once with Ehud Olmert in 2007. The first was refused by Yasser Arafat, who then triggered the Second Intifada, while the second was refused de facto by Mahmoud Abbas, who delayed his response until other factors removed Olmert from office, making the offer irrelevant. Sooner or later, the PA will have to urinate or get off the pot and admit that they are incapable of reaching any kind of negotiated agreement with anyone. Witness the PA's inability to reach any kind of agreement with Hamas for the past 8 years. Ms. Hass, if you want to look for reasons prior peace talks have failed, you might look closer to home than Jerusalem... take a good, hard look at Ramallah, too.
