In the old "Peanuts" comic strip, every football season Lucy suckered Charlie Brown to have a go at kicking the football. She would always pull it away at the last moment and CB would go flyiing on his head. Still, he never learned and the scenario was repeated every year. Such is the case with Israel and peace. Israel plays the part of Lucy.. I am not sure if it is the Americans or the Palestinians playing CB. Both I guess, since they never seem to learn. Israel will never agree to peace. They have much to lose and little to gain. Even I can understand why Israel will not willingly accept peace. Why can't the American politicians understand it?
