What Role for US in New Israel-Palestinian Peace Talks?

The new Israel-Palestinian peace talks are just that, US officials insist - bilateral talks between the two parties. But the US will have an important role in prodding both sides toward compromise.

It will take a mighty effort on both parties to come to an agreement. For the sake of all the innocents in this tragedy, I hope they are finally able to compromise and find a measure of peace. Thanks Cal.

Wishing them well! It's ONE thing to agree to written statements....but SUSTAINED improvement/commitment is far more difficult. Palestinians haven't done this very well in the past.

With the Palestinian refusal to acknowledge Israel, and Bebe's general mistrust of Obama, Kerry is in this for the long haul. Clinton tried, there is no question, but she had no support from this administration to what degree they would support Israel. Kerry, I fear , is in the same boat.

This is the worst standing joke; a dangling participle that will be corrected when everyone and I mean everyone stops funding both sides and let's them solve their own problems. BUTT OUT US, PRC, Russia, W. Europe and everybody else.
Kerry's a jackass who serves his CFR and TriLat masters. To Hamas and Fatah he's seen as a clown with a cash cow and not to be taken seriously. The only thing those criminals understand is the point of a gun or a knife.

Theodore, said just brilliantly!

As long, as Europe and US are pouring money to West Bankers and Ganans, and for as long, as descendants of Arabs who lived in Palestine between 1946 and 1948 are considered REFUGEES, even though they lived their whole lives in Arab countries or West, there will be no deal.

22 Arab states squeeze UN by the bulls, and Arab oil oils its politics in Europe and even US.

As long at it lasts - the peace has no chance.

I pray that they can come to some type of positive agreements, All countries have been through some sort of wars. It's time that we start showing more peace all around the world. Thanks Cal

Will send prayers, keep fingers crossed, but stop ant holding my breath on this one. I agree if all the extra parties would leave Israel and Palestine alone, more would be achieved, there'd be nobody to either side on.
Noted with a bit of hope here. Thank you.

As soon as Kerry leaves the middle of the road, he'll be in trouble. The reason he's got them around the table is because he's got equal leverage on them both.
I've got to hand it to Kerry, he and his team are great diplomats to have gotten them this far.
