Nobody expects any actual results from peace talks. At Annapolis Israel agreed to a bunch of things which were forgotten immediately after the talks finished. Nobody ever brought the topic up again. Israel cannot be "talked" out of the west bank to allow for a Palestinian state. Israel could be forced out by sanctions and isolation, but the international community has neither the solidarity nor the will to proceed. This means that Israel must be blasted out of the west bank. This is certainly possible and even likely although it could take another decade or two. Sadly, even if Israel is blasted out of the west bank, there will be friction at every spot that Israelis come into contact with Palestinians. How could people ever have expected anything else?
