Maybe I'm Stupid
I just don't understand this "agreement negotiation" as a condition to "peace talks." All of these "conditions" before the "real talks" seem to cover what should be discussed, if you believe that "peace" can be negotiated between a country under attack and the terrorists attacking it.
Is the United States the enemy? If not, why are we negotiating with them? These negotiations are just the entry ticket to talks with the Arabs. So that means that whatever concessions the USA wrings out of Israel, the Arabs will start at that point and grind us down to nothingness.
I just don't get it. Why are we participating in this horrendously dangerous game?
One of Bibi's Better Soundbites
This is all so obvious, but unfortunately rare to hear it from an Israeli politician in power:
Actually in this speech, he gets even better.
Unfortunately, without consistent action, it's just empty words. And why distinguish between different cities, town, etc into "settlements" and "not settlements?"
I don't understand why we don't arbitrarily decide which city we should recognize as capital of the countries which refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City!
Obviously, New York City is the Capital of the United States, and Liverpool is the Capital of Great Britain.
Which cities/countries would you recommend?
