There is on question which nobody can answer. The question is, Why would Israel want peace? Any peace agreement would be a disaster for Israel compared with simply maintaining the status quo. Does Israel really want to withdraw from the west bank? Do they even want to withdraw from a single major settlement? As we have seen, Israel resents even pausing the rate of settlement construction. There is no way with will even consider any substantial withdrawal much less the 1967 borders. Israel is killing time with peace fakery. They have done this many, many times before, and the result has been massive settlement growth. Israel is expecting the same result this time. But why are all those idiots in the quartet taking it seriously?
