    Yes. The Palestinian government is fractured and bifurcated.... PLO/West Bank vs. Hamas/Gaza

    History. Israel has been burned far too many times in the past. One prays for Peace, and one HOPES this is a legit move. However, to suggest, as Orion did that Israel isn't interested in Peace is patently dishonest.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Good. The Palestinians are offering a completely reasonable and acceptable offer. Let us hope that Israel agrees to this, and lets hope the Gazans throw out Hamas and put in a government that will make a similar agreement.
    A very similar if not identical agreement was tentatively agreed to in the past by Israel at Taba (97% of the West Bank, all of Gaza, and half of East Jerusalem with land swaps to make a contiguous Palestinian state and to allow Israel to retain some of their settlements), Arafat rejected it over the right of return, and now that Fatah is offering it the hardliners are in control of the Knesset and probably won't accept it and even if they do there's still Hamas to contend with. It's a good plan but the timing sucks.

    Israel should have 100% control of all their capital city. Palestine should receive none of it and there should be no partitioning of the Israeli capital.

    Would need to look at this a bit more but seems to be a reasonable plan. No info on right of return, which would be a big issue. The underground tunnel sounds intelligent as well.

    Are you going to give your reasoning for the above statements?

    I have no doubt that Israel will say no and blame the Palestinian's for Israel's no. Same old story and it wont change.

    The current negotiations are closely monitored by US Special Envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell.

    As usual, you prattle on without any substantive knowledge of the process.

    LOL and so what if Mitchell is monitoring the negotiations? Seriously the history of these peace talks has been one side or another saying no and then radicals on both sides start to open fire at each other. This will never ever change as long as both sides do not deal with the radicals among them, and considering Israel has a PM who easily could be called a radical, then well..

    US Special Envoy Mitchell reports directly to Obama on the pace and substance of the mutual negotiations. So far, Obama is satisfied with both aspects and steady progress is being made.

    As always, tiresome rhetoric is a poor substitute for dynamical understanding and comprehension.
