I'm really running out of words for the ludicrous nature of this so-called peace process supposedly between Israel and the Palestinians. From the get-go Israel was allowed to hand pick it's negotiating partners and they opted to talk peace with people who they are not even at war with. It's like Hitler talking peace with the Vichy regime. Now they're negotiating as if they want peace with the USA and the USA is responding in kind.
You will have read that the release of this Israeli spy, or rather American spy for Israel, is now hovering above the table. Apparently America might release this guy in return for Israel not making Obama look the complete ass it usually makes him look like in these situations. Check out Daily Beast on it but I think the deal is if Obama releases Pollard Israel won't announce its new settlements so loudly. Something like that.
But really, if the talks were between two opponents in a war then the concessions should be made by the parties to that war or the party that has anything to concede. From Lavon through Liberty to Pollard, Israel often acts like it's at war with its biggest benefactor but what does America really get for this humiliating concession to Israel? if, of course, the concession is made...
