When is Israel going to lay out just what they would accept in a Palestinian state, if they would even accept a state at all. The Likud platform plainly states that there will be no Palestinian state west of the Jordan River and Bibi lays out impossible preconditions such as keeping the large settlement blocs, including Ariel which is deep in the heart of the West Bank. He also insists that Israel will keep all of Jerusalem and keep troops indefinitely in the Jordan Valley. He knows that those preconditions are a death knell for any Palestinian state and that is likely intentional.. When will Israel get honest and stop the pretending that they are interested in peace?Unless there is a violable and contiguous Palestinian state on all of the territory Israel occupied in 1967 there will be no peace for Israel but maybe the leaders don't really care.
