Off the mark. Kerry is not a magician, only a facilitator. Olmert and Abbas met 36 times in less than 2 years, coming close to an agreement. The one who shat on all the progress, all the trust, is Bibi. He regards all Arabs as sub-human. If Bibi woke up one day realizing that Palestinians are humans just like us, all he would have to do is pick up the phone, call Abbas, and invite him to lunch in Jerusalem. Progress is only made between equals, with respect, hospitality, magnanimity. Without those qualities between Bibi and Abbas, nothing is possible.
