There's always been something next with Israel, because its Israel's way of forestalling any progress. Way back when it was recognizing Israel - Arafat did it. Five or six years ago it was recognize Israel's right to exist - Abbas did it. Then three years ago or so, Lieberman(who else?), dreams up the this new one of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state...which has become Israel's latest fixation - and if Abbas does that? What's next? Recognition of a greater Israel with no room for Palestinians? It's all a ploy to forestall a final agreement, and every time the Palestinians have conceded, the bar has been raised. Netanyahu could care less whether the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state...because honestly, it has no effect on anything and no meaning in addition to the recognition the Palestinians have already afforded. To him, it's just a ploy that he can sell to the world as a reason for refusing to reach an agreement. And if they do it, there'll STILL be no movement on his part, because that's his intention in the first place...and a NEW demand will be devised!
