Feigned interest or legitimate willingness ...

The resurrection of the 2002 Arab League proposal could start talks again. I especially love Livni's comments about halfway down the article concerning even a "symbolic" right of return for Palestinians refugees to re-settle within Israel. I find the next sentence especially fascinating, and challenge anyone to find another "democracy" with this well-defined mission statement !

I am also cynical in Israel's ultimate willingness to comply with any treaty it may sign. The only reason we are discussing new talks in the first place is due to Israel's unfulfilled treaty obligations under the original Camp David accords.

But I'll give 5:1 odds its Israel's conditions that eventually scuttles the fair proposals.
