To assume that Israel wants peace is to assume that Israel wants to stop settlement expansion and make a significant withdrawal from the settlements. Any peace will include this as a minimum. Of course, Israel does not want this. Israel will never want this as long as it is more profitable to avoid peace than it would be to embrace peace. It is fashionable among some Israelis to imply that Israel wants peace, while avoiding the discussion of "core issues". This is Israeli double talk. There can not be meaningful peace talks without discussing core issues. Until America understands that their government has been hijacked by a foreign power and takes steps to remedy the situation, Israel will continue to stoke the fires of Islamic extremism. Americas lopsided support of Israel makes America an enemy of the Arab world and Islam in general. It makes Americans targets of Israels enemies. This is what Israel really wants.
