The Obama administration seems to be living in the same fantasy land that the Clinton administration was living in when they tried to fashion a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. The Americans don't seem to understand that at the end, it isn't about what percentage of land Israel will give up, or even about security. As Clinton found out, the reason there will never be peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians is because the Palestinians are incapable of making the compromises to make a peace deal happen. You can give Israel all the arms in the world, but when the bottom line is all or nothing, it doesn't matter. Israel was willing to give up over ninety percent of the land and share Jerusalem, but the Palestinians want it all. If the Obama administration doesn't believe this, all they have to do is ask Clinton.
