TO ACCEPT NEGOTIATIONS IS TO ACCEPT STATEHOOD:

Olmert offers ‘serious’ plan for new state (Stephen Farrell, 11/27/06, Times of London)

Twenty-four hours after Palestinian militants began a ceasefire in Gaza, Israel’s Prime Minister sought to maintain the momentum yesterday by offering peace talks leading to the creation of a Palestinian state.

Ehud Olmert said that Israel would release prisoners, withdraw from West Bank Jewish settlements and ease checkpoints if Palestinians abandoned violence.

Pretty good test for the Palestinians–if they sit down it’s over.
