Camp David, 2000. Arafat refuses and makes no counteroffer, thereby demonstrating his unseriousness about making any deal. Instead, within two months, he launches a savage terror war that kills a thousand Israelis.
Benjamin Netanyahu brought his Likud led coalition to open recognition of a Palestinian state, thereby creating Israel's first national consensus for a two state solution. He is also the only prime minister to agree Air Max 93 Triple Black to a settlement freeze 10 months something no Labor or Kadima government has ever done.

This is not ancient history. All three peace talks occurred over the past decade. And every one completely contradicts the current mindless narrative of Israeli "intransigence" as the obstacle to peace.
Settlements? Every settlement remaining within the new Palestine would be destroyed and emptied, precisely as happened in Gaza.
Abbas unwaveringly insists on the so called "right of return," which would demographically destroy Israel by swamping it with millions of Arabs, thereby turning the world's only Jewish state into the world's 23rd Arab state. And he has repeatedly declared, as recently as last week in New York: "We shall not recognize a Jewish state."
narrative, Middle East peace is made impossible by a hard line Likud led Israel that refuses to accept a Palestinian state and continues to build settlements.
The key word here is "final." The Palestinians are quite prepared to sign interim agreements, like Oslo. Framework agreements, like Annapolis. Cease fires, like the 1949 armistice. Anything but a final deal. Anything but a final peace. Anything but a treaty that ends the conflict once and for all while leaving a Jewish state still standing.
Taba, 2001. An even sweeter deal the Clinton Parameters is offered. Arafat walks away again.
It is remarkable how this gross inversion of the truth has become conventional wisdom. In fact, Nike Air Max 2011
Nor is this new. It is perfectly consistent with the long history of Palestinian rejectionism. Consider:
Did Abbas accept? Of course not. If he had, the conflict would be over and Palestine would already be a member of the United Nations.
have required them to sign a final peace agreement that accepted a Jewish state on what they consider the Muslim patrimony.
So why did the Palestinians say no? Because saying yes would Nike Air Max 2013 Blue
To which Abbas responded by boycotting the talks for nine months, showing up in the 10th, then walking out when the freeze expired. Last week he reiterated that he will continue to boycott peace talks unless Israel gives up in advance claim to any territory beyond the 1967 lines. Meaning, for example, that the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem is Palestinian territory. This is not just absurd. It violates every prior peace agreement. They all stipulate that such demands are to be the subject of negotiations, not their precondition.
This is the reason that, regardless of who is governing Israel, there has never been peace. Territorial disputes are solvable; existential conflicts are not.
Israel, 2008. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert makes the ultimate capitulation to Palestinian demands 100 percent of the West Bank (with land swaps), Palestinian statehood, the division of Jerusalem with the Muslim parts becoming the capital of the new Palestine. And incredibly, he offers to turn over the city's holy places, including the Western Wall Judaism's most sacred site, its Kaaba to an international body on which sit Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state has elicited widespread sympathy. After all, what choice did he have? According to the accepted Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard Black Ebay
