That's what I'm telling you. Israel has shown that they are willing to come to terms that recognize the right of a palestinian state to exist (as we probably would with Puerto Rico), but since the Israeli state already exists they insist that palestinians accept their right to exist now. There is no lack of reciprocity here on the part of the Israelis.
