Israel, Palestinians agree to 2nd round of peace talks


news.yahoo.com

Israeli and Palestinian leaders agreed Thursday to produce a framework for a permanent peace deal and to hold a second round of direct talks this month, modest achievements reached under U.S. mediation amid deep skepticism about success at their first such session in two years.

"I see in you a partner for peace," Netanyahu told Abbas. "Together we can lead our people to a historic future that can put an end to claims and to conflict. Now this will not be easy. A true peace, a lasting peace would be achieved only with mutual and painful concessions from both sides."

Albeit modest and still fumbling, these talks are definetely encouraging for all the people that want to see peace in the region. Although there still is a very long way ahead, the fact that these two leaders are seeing each other is significant.

In politics, forms are substance. A right wing nut as Netanyahu calling Abbas "a partner" and accepting some concessions is revealing.

Let's hope the extremists in both sides of the table don't derail this with senseless acts of murder and terrorism, be it by individuals or by a state.

Netanyahu has publicly stated that he intentionally derailed the Oslo Accords. Perhaps the recent terrorist attacks in the West Bank are in some way connected to Netanyahu to bring an early end to these peace talks?

Nobody in power wants peace there, too much money to be made from war and fighting. This is just a lull to let people breathe for a minute before it explodes in everybodies face again.

I'm not being naive as to the intentions and real nature of Netanyahu and in general anything associated to the word Likud.

However Obama's placing big stakes at these talks being a success, come the elections in November, and we all know how intertwined American and Israeli politics are.
