    Once again, one side is always eager to accommodate, conciliate, and compromise, and the other side is unilateral and immovable. In any case, the jihad imperative makes any negotiated peace with Israel only a stepping-stone to the goal, which remains the destruction of the Jewish State. Abbas reportedly said that his position is no different from those Arafat present in previous negotiations, and that his staff is the same as Arafat's.... Well if Abb-ass refuses to recognize Israel's existence, what makes him any different than Hamas, Iran, Al Qaeda? What's the point of talking then? The Fakestinians obviously don't want peace, they want Israel's annihilation, so give them war. Peace can only happen between civilized people who are willing to make compromises, not with barbarians who think they're clever and that we don't know what their true aims are. They should be grateful that Israel is being so kind and understanding and willing to resolve problems with words. The day that the infidels decide we no longer want peace with muslims (cause we've had enough of their BS) is a day they will come to deeply regret, since we'll be uncompromising, inconsolable and unmerciful.
