  •  Excellent point by the diarist. (2+ / 0-)

    Subverting the negotiation process with pure bad faith has of course been the MO of the current occupant of Israel's Prime Minister office, both in his first 1996-1999 term and now.

    Memory refresher: the 2001 video that resurfaced last year, in which Bibi (then out office) details his strategy to settlers.

    A similar strategy with even more dramatic talent was implemented in 1999-2001 by Ehud Barak - the man who physically buried the Oslo accords while blaming the Palestinians. Now Bibi's defense minister, he has lost all credibility after dismantling and deserting his Labor party to save his governmet seat.

    A Palestinian negotiator once likened this strategy to "negotiating with someone over how to divide a pizza, while you eat the pizza in front of their eyes."
