I think this will be very important step to bring peace in Middle East.

YES! If Israel is serious about these negotiations, it doens't make a lot of sense to build houses on ground and -at the same time- negotiating about leaving it forgood.

The only way out of the conflict is to oblige all parties to adhere to international law. This include evacuating all settlements in occupied territory, and finding a deal on refugees – including a combination of compensation and return for some – that can accommodate both sides.

The natural growth of an illegal settlement is also illegal. If we support the settlements, we send the following message, "if you persistently keep doing something wrong, the world will make peace with it."

Why the International community or so called terrorist supporing EU did not call Israel for a special meeting whe they killed 1300 palastine innosent people? because are they against muslim community?

The two states solution is going to be the final destination for this problem. So the world has to work towards that direction. I think, to keep the trust on the both sides, all the new settlements should be freezed.

Israel has always been stabbed in the back after they give land to the Palestinians. Lets see the Palestinians dismantle their terrorist groups FIRST then we can talk of giving land. The Allies in World War II didnt make peace with Germany until after the Nazis surrendered!

i do believe that if 2 parties are ready to make peace, they can do it without any conditions. in this case, i think we need to give them a lot of time to harm and kill each other before we will see peace in their region. i know it sounds harsh, but i am kinda bored with each of their causes – all of the fighting and killings are all senseless.

Illegal occupation and settlements are a way in larger context of Ethnic Cleansing. As we know, initiatial thoughts of these settlements came with the intention of grabbing lands and redraw the map. Illegal occupation and grabing land forcefully will never be accepted and never solve Ethnic Conflicts. If you see deeply, Sri Lankan Sinhala Regime is now following the same path that Israel followed and occupy and grab Tamils land through systematic colonization. These are steps that create more divisions and never be a step towards sustainable peace.

the only way to achieve piece in palestine is to get rid of all the zionist occupyers, they should all go back to where they came from.

With the recently elected right wing government in Israel, the loyalty oaths, the walling out of Palestinians, the control over the movement of Palestinians, the unequal status of Arab Israelis, Nazi argument can be made both ways. I dont think Israeli govt. is Nazi. Hamas or Fatah can be anything but I dont think that they have a Nazi idealogy either. I have hope in Obama and in a two state solution.
