Fake arguments over real problem

Netanyahu and Livni sparred in the Knesset about the framework for peace with the Palestinians.

Netanyahu insisted on terms he knows full well will never be implemented: a unified Jerusalem and an IDF presence in the Jordan Valley (Rabin had insisted on annexation). Livni did not dare to publicly sacrifice those sacred cows, and so had nothing on which to challenge Netanyahu. Instead, she claimed that the Israeli government somehow missed ‘a historic chance’ presented by Peres to hold an international peace conference under Jordanian auspices. As if yet another conference would have solved anything.
