Why can't Israel stop settlement construction for 3 months and negotiate borders ? Why can't Israel commit to its obligation of releasing those prisoners ? What's wrong with this Palestinian unity government which recognizes Israel and will stop its violence as Israel reciprocates with seriousness to negotiating a peace deal ? One must be reminded that Israel has unilaterally overtaken territories in the first place, which it planned to annex, and has not demonstrated in actuality the intention to return these territories as it unilaterally settled them. So as the Palestinians keep saying, the ball is in Israel's court. As they say in Hebrew, " lo le fas fes " - do not ruin it - again.
