And the Palestinians don't either. If they did, they would have taken the deal Clinton brokered 12 years ago, and they would have their own nation.
But since they cannot compromise on a simple thing like letting Jews live, they got nothing.
If the Palestinians want to engage in free trade, they need to stop lobbing rockets into Israel and advocating the wiping out of the Jewish race. By doing so, they would lose nothing, and would gain support for their cause from around the world.
When one can gain and give up nothing, and they pass on the opportunity, well one can easily bring their ability to negotiate under scrutiny.
