New! on JPost.com: The Hot Potato This is your chance to voice your opinion. We've chosen a controversial / interesting entry that appeared on our site (talkback, blog, etc...) and we want to know what you have to say about it. TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: The 'Jewish Israel' genie Talkback #: 4 Talkbacker: Y. Kreminsky - Israel Text: They don't know the first thing about it: Negotiation is an ADVERSARIAL process -- you never negotiate with a "partner". There's no place in negotiations for "confidence building measures" -- that's for forming partnerships. When negotiating, you don't defer the toughest issues for last -- you start with them. You can't negotiate with someone who doesn't respect you -- and the Palestinians have only the grossest disrespect for Israel and the Jewish People. To hell with "negotiating" with them.
