    Mr. Siegman has no idea about what the middle east is all about. I wonder if he expects all the Arab countries to aplogize for expulsing the Jews who lived in their countries for generations and generations, longer than half of the Palestinians who have emigrated to Palestine occupied by the Ottoman empire and the British Commonwealth. Does he expect for Israel to agree for a Palestinian state with their capital in East Jerusalem. Has he ever asked himself why the Palestinians have never required self determination from Turkey, Britain and Jordan? It is very easy to put the blame on Israel when the Palestinians have aspirations like the return of the Palestinian refugees that Israel can never accept and recognise Israel as a predominatly Jewish state with equal rights to its minority residents. It is very easy for mr Kerry to blame Israel, when the Palestinians do not want to discuss peace but impose their wills on Israel. Peace will be obtained when they will not treat their terrorists as heroes.
