Israel does not want Peace?

Gideon Levi, one of our International Media Council award winning journalists, wrote this gloomy assesment - which was sent to us by the Palestinian Ambassador in Washington, Afif Safieh:

The moment of truth has arrived, and it has to be said: Israel does not want peace. The arsenal of excuses has run out, and the chorus of Israeli rejection already rings hollow. Until recently, it was still possible to accept the Israeli refrain that "there is no partner" for peace and that "the time isn't right" to deal with our enemies. Today, the new reality before our eyes leaves no room for doubt and the tired refrain that "Israel supports peace" has been left shattered.
