Do I not understand reality? Peres and Abbas are men who have absolutely no power. Bibi Netanyahu has total control of the Israeli government and thus ALL power. So how can ANY meeting which 'bypasses' Netanyahu be anything but a farce? Haaretz needs to replace Barak Ravid, and the editors responsible for running this flatulent farce of an article with a blown fuse, burned out circuits, and dead light bulbs. Better useless electronics than totally defective reporters and editors.
