    The very concept of 'Mideast Peace Talks' was decided less than a month after Barak Obama was sworn in as President of the USA. Israel chose to have a government composed of only the extreme right, and the lunatic right. Which party would pursue peace negotiations because of either ideology or pragmatic nature? Likud? Shas? Yisrael Beiteinu? The Ehud Barak nee Labor Party? Obama is constantly thwarted by the idea that other men are as reasonable and decent as he is. Israel might benefit from Peace, but the leadership of Israel has nothing to gain and everything to lose if peace were to break out. Obama had better decide HOW it might create situation where Israel would have no choice but opt for a peace agreement. Or he should stop talking peace and re-align the United States with nations in the Mideast which do not threaten it's foreign policy out of avarice. I joke about 'Uncle Sugar' instead of 'Uncle Sam.' Israel demands that the USA be 'Uncle Suicide' because of Israel.'
