You know, I have never trusted the people claiming to represent the Palestinians, certainly not on the "peace with Israel" question
Unfortunately, it may have reached the point where I don't really trust the current Israeli Government as a "viable peace partner" either. I would emphasize that the Israelis have a democratically elected government, and its for them and their government to make the security decisions for Israel. And, as the article in the link below points out, the Israelis have a variety of opinions. Still, I think that Israel policy may be driven, at the moment, by Israelis who want Israeli to permanently occupy the entire West Bank. (or, as they would say, "Judea and Samaria"). Anyway, I hope you like the linked article.
