    Getting the tripartite together was an acheivement. Not forcing prior conditions was progress. Them agreeing to restart the negotiations was good. Politics is like a dance, with steps foward and back. The important thing is that folks are dancing again. In the end, there will be a settlement because without it there will be no secure Israel or no Fulfilled Palestiniant State and ongoing conflict and catastrophe. Yes, Mr. Eldar and everyone: criticize and fault find and make suggestions, and give solid input and express ideals, but in the end reality will prevail, and for the sake of us all let us hope it is a peace acheived thru negotiation. Blessed are the peace makers and the nudniks that keep prodding. Bibi will be the one to recognize the Palestinian state, and Hamas will be the entity that acknolwedges Israel reversing extreme Islamic denial. men.
