The recent talks between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have reached a standstill,
with the Israeli negotiators refusing to present borders between Israel and a future Palestinian state.
[ Israel can’t present its own borders to anyone – because it is constantly expanding them.
This is the root cause of the current conflict. ]
With the deadline set for Thursday January 26 by Palestinian negotiators,
and no progress having been made,
the talks have been declared a failure.
Since the state of Israel was created in 1948,
the Israeli government has never declared its borders,
and has continually expanded its territory through the use of force.
Currently, the Israeli military controls more than 85% of historic Palestine,
and Israeli settlements continue to expand further onto Palestinian land
in violation of international law.
