    As a Palestinian, I am open to peace, but the basis of peace is UN 242 and 338, and that is land for peace and withdrawal from the lands taken in 1967, and Palestinians want the settlements to end and East Jerusalem as the capitol and land to be aken for settlements has to be exchanged for land from the 1948 lands. Pardon me, for being skeptical, but Netanyahu's tree planting ceremony and building in East Jerusalem doesn't quite convince me. This time he hasn't said Palestinians have to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, which is the business of Israelis, not our business, if Israel is a democracy. I think peace is possible, but Israel so far is not quite following 242 and 338. Maybe, an agreement can come from Netanyahu, but I do remember Netanyahu tried to scuttle Oslo. He was against the disengagement. I am not sure Israelis would even trust him.
