The status quo is ideal for Israel. They profit too much to want change. "Peace talks" are something that Israel uses to placate America and the EU. The idea is that if Israel seeks peace talks, then Israel is seeking peace. This is far from the truth, but only the Palestinians seem to have noticed. You really can't blame the Palestinians for declining to play the dupe in Israels game playing. Israel and the Palestinians are not on an equal footing. Israel controls every aspect of the Palestinians lives and the Palestinians are powerless to change this. For America to say that peace is for the Israelis and Palestinians to work out is the height of stupidity. Peace must be forced on Israel, who will scream and choke on it every inch of the way. This force must come from America. All that is needed is a leader with intelligence, courage, and integrity. We may have a long wait.
