The arabs refused to attend any negotiations for the very reason that Obama told them in Cairo that he is opposed to settlements including in Jerusalem. so it was Obama who is responsible for the disruption of the direct negotiations. furthermore, the only reason Abbas consented to resume was that he saw Israel building settlements while he twiddled his thumbs. Now that Obama through Clinton again made a scene over the settlements Abbas again broke off talks. In his place so would I. why should I talk and possibly compromise on something when Obama and the Quartet are in fasct forcing my opponent to the wall. they certainly are more powerful than, I, Abbas. Where does that leave Israel and what does it have to negotiate with? Let me see. Israel can withdraw since it has the most powerful army in the region to feel safe? Withdraw to "secure and recognized borders " why not all the way to Masada. A "most powerful army" and "secure and recognized borders" is nonsense. Expel the pals.
