We have nudged the Palestinians into each other’s arms. (Special congratulations to Panetta on this one.) And then We winked at the Europeans and now they cannot stop fuming. They make it into an art. Specially the Russians (thank Clinton for that). Next the Palestinians will call for a vote at the SC. We shall not encourage them, to be sure, because that is counterproductive and unhelpful and only negotiations will lead to peace. The vote will be 14-1 because yes We shall veto it. Then the King of Peacocks has one week to come to the Quartet, bright eyed polished tail, or else. Sarah should start packing if she hasn’t already started.
