...conditions are simply not right now for a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and that it is delusional to argue otherwise. ... neither George W. Bush nor Barack Obama had a real chance to negotiate an agreement. And ...the UN resolution on settlements isn’t worth the trouble of reading.
...the peace process has been more of a diplomatic fig leaf than an actual movement towards any kind of possible agreement for many years now. That’s unfortunate for both Israelis and Palestinians, but it’s a reality.
