    Angry someone answer this question.

    what means 'facts on the ground' in this text? and what this text wants to say?

    Using negotiations as a cover to create "facts on the ground", designed to pre-empt and prejudice their final outcome, has become a time-honoured tradition in Israel.

    Re: someone answer this question.
