If the Obama administration wants peace, it has to take a sober, panoramic view at Israeli settlements, at Palentinians' refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish state, at the Arab League conditioning everything on Israel, at Iran's moves, at Syria's role, at Gaza and Lebanon, and decide to put back in place its once robust foreign policy, which seems in shambles these days. By their own dynamics, the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority are unable even to arrive to the negotiating table. Take a deep breath, refocus, and please, don't despair.
