    Since Hamas persists in its goal to destroy Israel and won't participate in the talks, what agreemet could be achieved? It could only be an agreement between Israel and the West Bank with Gaza still an avowed terrorist enemy at war with Israel. That is not a peace agreement and none would be possible. Moreover, the West Bank wants E. Jerusalem and elimination of the settlements. It proposes to get it all and give up nothng. In effect it knew there would be no basis for a peace agreement acceptable to Israel. Now Abbas will run around saying I did not get my lolly pop and it was all israel's fault. So I want you, the UN, to demand that I get it and force Israel to give it to me. Well Abbas your game is transparent back here in the USA and the US will soon tell you to stick your lolly pop up your sit zone. In the meantime it will be busy with Iran.
