Our country sabotaged the new round of peace talks with Palestinian Arabs in Amman by refusing even to present them with a map outlining Israeli border demands. And what can Netanyahu do? He cannot agree to the same border adjustments as were offered by Olmert—or any border adjustments, for that matter, because of his coalition partners. At the same time, the Palestinians cannot agree to anything less than the borders they refused to accept with Olmert.
And so we conduct peace talks for the eyes of Americans.
