Peace is NOT Like Falling in Love
Headline in today's Haaretz
Israel's U.S. envoy:'No one can force us to make peace'
Any outside attempt to impose a deal would be like 'forcing somebody to fall in love', says ambassador.
But people can - and should - stop you from beating your wife, ... or your neighbour's wife, ... or your neighbour themselves.
The Israeli government thinks that peace and justice are favours for it to grant if it is so moved. It takes no responsibility and feels no guilt to the Palestinians it has dispossessed and who it continued to treat as second class.
