but it's just a straightforward statement of the facts. If Israel wants peace, why haven't they accepted the 2002 Arab peace initiative? If they want to seriously negotiate, why won't they reveal their positions, and why invent ridiculous new preconditions every time serious progress seems imminent? If they want to be recognized as a democracy, how can they continue to deny legal representation to 25% of the people under the government's rule? The Palestinian demands have been clearly articulated, but what are they supposed to do when Israel refuses to say what it's after, other than vague statements about keeping the Jordan valley (i.e., making the Palestinian "state" nothing more than a closely guarded reservation)?
