"The Palestinians have set three impossible conditions: that the negotiations start from the point they left off at the end of 2008 when Ehud Olmert was prime minister, that they be based on a total Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 lines and that the freeze of [settlement] construction continue," Shalom was quoted as saying." Lets take a look at these three conditions.

1. That the negotiations start where they left off during the previous Israeli administration.
Many things were already agreed to. Starting over with each new Israeli government shows Israel is not really interested in peace only negotiations.

2. withdrawal to the 1967 armistice lines.
These are the lines recognized by the world community. UN Res 242 suggests these lines are negotiable but those are essentially the lines.

3. The settlement freeze should continue during negotiations.
Settlements are contrary to International Law so why should the Palestinians negotiate while Israel is breaking the law.

IF the Israelis conform with International law and conventions peace will come.

Israel has never kept her word which is why there is no trust.

the Palistinians should be glad to not be in Israel, sad to say...
It is only a matter of time before either the Zionists who caused the holocaust and who created Israel or the Fundie xians who need Israel to be destroyed so their "God" can come back, destry the place.
poor Israelis
In a way I feel sorry for them.
These nice Jewish folk whom I applaud for there efforts, tell it like it is.

Israel cant withdraw to1967 boarders sice its already imbedded its self deaply into what was palestine, infronstructure wise.

israel cant let back in refugees to their former homes as it then will have trouble brining in more jews, (thats how israel operate, talks about lack of space on its own soil so needs to expand) but while at that will continue to expand its boarders to home those duel nationals.

israel keep its word, that will be the day
