    The peace talks are a farce, but they do serve a purpose for Israel and America. They are useless to the Palestinians. Obama is already considered a failure by many in America. A large failure of the peace talks right before the November election is to be avoided at all costs. This means that America will do all in their power to keep that from happening. Obama NEEDS a peace talk throught November. Obama will make sure that Israel profits by playing along with him. Israel isn't really making much of an effort to do this, but that's because they realize that Obama is desperate and can't afford to reject anything they may do as long as they continue the peace fakery. Only the Palestinians have nothing to gain from the fakery, althought Abbas will likely be paid off in some way. The Palestinians should walk away immediately and not return to the peace table until all the requirements for a sincere peace effort are in place. This may never happen, but that is no reason to participate in fakery.
