Will they recognize "Hamastan" in Gaza? Will they recognize Jerusalem as "corpus separatum", or as a divided (barbed wire, mines?) and/or shared city? Will they recognize the right for jews in some settlements to live in the State of Palestine? Will they recognize certain land-swaps? Why recognize the "borders of 1967", and not the borders of the UN partition plan? What can this Quartet do, other than issue hollow declarations and general recognizations, thereby running away from the details? What is this performance worth? And will the Quartet finally recognize the death of the concept of direct negotiations? Imposed solutions - is this the "new black"?
