Am I the only one who notices this same pattern over and over again?
The Israeli government seems to abuse the want for peace by others.
Just a day after movement in the peace process where Arab ministers and some Palestinian leaders said they would negotiate even though the circumstances were not to their liking, Israel moves the goal posts again by authorising new apartments to be built in settlements in the West Bank.
It seems like a kind of "give us everything we want and then we will consider if your requests are worth considering", an approach that does not work as has been seen through decades of rivalry.
Yet the world watches by.
