All Israel asks is that the Palestinians RECOGNIZE ISRAEL, and then the negotiations ball will start rolling. You seem to ignore this `minor` fly in the ointment. Israel will continue to build settlements until discussions start. Israel says let`s start and even had a moratorium on settlement construction during which no recognition of Israel was forthcoming! Hundreds of countries recognize Israel. Abbas won`t - what kind of `peace` do YOU see?! Grow up and wake up! If you want to be factual, do not be selective in the facts you use!
