I am willing to forgive the Americans their almost childish repetition of the same formulas (direct negotiations the best way, SC will not advance said direct negotiations). But they need to explain to us why direct negotiations is the only way to go, except that it safeguards the US exclusive franchise in Palestine. Are they hoping to restart them? And how do they plan to get the Palestinians to the table without a complete stop to settlement constructions? which takes us back to the beginning of the circle.
