Facts on the ground are not irrelevant! In any war (and this IS a war), peace talks are preceeded by an armistice, a cessation of hostilities. In this case, a reasonable condition for armistice is that Israel totally freeze her settlement and building activity while peace talks proceed. The PLO has already presentd a peace plan (behind closed doors) to the Israeli government. The Israeli government has rejected it. Israel refuses to institute a total freeze. The only conclusion to be drawn is that she does not want to talk peace. Actions speak much louder than political statements. There will be no peace talks this time around, Obama, Mitchell, and Clinton notwithstanding. And it will not be because PLO or Abbas block the peace process, either.
