…blares the title of a YNetNews headline. “The US president can secure a Palestinian-Israeli peace deal.”
For those who haven’t heard, the U.S.A. has called the Israelis and Palestinians to a peace conference. In the past such conferences were called when a deal had been worked out and a few details remained that the U.S. would pressure the participants through. It would end with an historic signing agreement with bright political lights shining upon the now peaceful participants.
Today the USA calls together participants, one of whom has refused for years to speak to the other. One represents half their people at best, none at worst as they rule in contradiction to their own laws for elections and changing governments, with the other half of their people pronouncing dire threats daily and attacking daily (last attack – mortars, 16 hour ago).
But don’t worry, the U.S.A. has everyone’s best interests at heart. And a burning desire for peace. With such purity, how can it go other than well?
