    The entire U.S. administration's Middle East A-team--President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, and Special Envoy Mitchell--is defying the mass majority of political analysts by dismissing the status quo in the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza Strip, and insisting that the latest round of Palestinian-Israeli direct talks has the potential to lead to an agreement which will resolve the conflict. I have a deep fear that they may be correct in predicting an agreement will be signed, but I do not have an iota of confidence that it will end the conflict.

    Conventional wisdom on both sides of the Atlantic predicts that the current peace talks will hit a cement wall before the one-year time frame expires. The numerous explanations for the predicted failure are all sensible given the region's track record. International law is blatantly ignored, the logic of might is right trumps justice and the international community continues to turn its back to its own obligations toward the occupied Palestinian people.

    Just some advice: Less time posting mindlessly and more time on a career and you might not be such a huge loser in life.

    He is a loser of epic proportions.
    However the Pali flack he posted is instructive in that the Palis have no incentive to pursue peace, as I've maintained. The current round of talks will end in failure since Abbas cannot make peace with Israel without suffering the fate of either Anwar Sadat or Saddam Hussein.

    Greater Israel's demise SWIFTly approaches.

    "SWIFT links 8,740 financial institutions in 209 countries. Without access to SWIFT and its interbank payment network, countries are unable either to pay for imports or to receive payment for exports. In short, no payment -- no trade."

    Can you prosper without money?

    Losers.

    The talks will fail, as the always do, because they are based on the false premise that Israel is a legitimate state and the Palestinians must surrender.

    Abbas is virtually alone in his willingness to surrender. Eleven other factions in Palestine oppose his willingness to engage in these fake peace talks.

    Is this the policy towards the thousands of Palestinian children who can't get proper medical aid because of Israeli embargoes on medical supplies and equipment?
