    Negotiations are dead. The Palestinians and most of the rest of the world understand that the time wasting process, broken promises and high drama of the last 20 years are not only over, but should never have taken place. Whatever took place behind closed doors could always be spun in Israel's favor and always was. Israel would re-neg on signed agreements, and then tell the world that there is no partner for peace, or the Palestinians aren't "ripe" for peace. Now, with the various UN initiatives, we're moving into a more open environment, where Quartets with lackeys like Ross and Blair are completely irrelevant, and where dirty words like "international laws" and Geneva conventions take precedence. It will no longer be possible for an arrogant Bill Clinton to tell Yassir Arrafat that Camp David is not the UN. Now they are in the UN, and now the game has changed.
