The Palestinians, of course, can hardly be expected to enter into prolonged discussions of how to share a cake that Israel is visibly eating while they talk. The Jews, of course, don't actually want peace -- unless by 'peace' you mean peacefully eating up all the cake. So duh. OF COURSE talks are going to break down. Until the US is willing to TELL Israel what she is going to agree to, there's no point in talks.
