    Normally I would always support talks, but really, in this case, they're a complete waste of time. It's clear from the start that Bibi can;t and won't deliver the minimum necessary for peace so what's to talk about? The weather? Bibi and Obama only want talks so they can cynically proclaim them as a great breakthrough even though they they know they will lead nowhere. Ultimately there's not even really a need for talks. Everybody knows pretty much where evrybody stands on all the issues, What's needed is action, primarily from israel because it's Israel who is stealing Pal land and keeping the Pals captive, not the Pals stealing israeli land and keeping Israelis captive.
