"If the Palestinians declare a state unilaterally, Israel can undertake unilateral action, too" – so declared Prime Minister Netanyahu and so did threaten Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. But what is it you are doing all the time in Jerusalem, Mr. Prime Minister and Mr. Foreign Minister? Are these not unilateral acts?

And what about the settlement construction and extension in general? Does that not happen to be unilateral? Did anybody, anywhere in the world, agree to your creating accomplished facts in a territory whose future is subject to negotiations, before the negotiations had even begun?

When you anyway take unilateral steps all the time, what have you got left with which to threaten the Palestinians?
