Why do we insist on only reacting to "their" initiative. All I hear are some weak comments from our foreign minister about the unacceptability of the part about refugees and their refusal to change it. My question is, where is our initiative? What is in fact acceptable to us and delineated by our leaders reflecting the view of a majority of our people that will demonstrate what we want and are willing to accept. Take the lead, don't just wait for them, don't just follow. We will never achieve an acceptable and or even somewhat secure peace without effective and powerful leadership from our representatives.
