Peace between Israel and the Hamas front Palestinians is impossible because Jerusalem is the original City of God for his Old Testament people of Israel. Israel did not start the 1967 war inflicted by the Palestinians who attacked and were defeated, in the process driven back to the present borders. So-called Palestinian territory has been used for unending rocket attacks against Israel, something the US would certainly not tolerate. The current problem of US led negotiations is that the US notoriously failed in all its intrusions and interference in the Arab-Muslim Muddle East World, and there is no reason to believe the Wisdom of Solomon shall suddenly come to US politicians. Losing Presidential candidate Ron Paul was right; Stop all wars unilaterally, negotiation doesn't work, bring home all US troops in foreign lands; cancel all cash and military contributions to the warring countries that in the end are used against US and its interests; and let them throw rocks as they do for the TV cameras. The US can lead the warring countries to water but cannot make them drink. The US has been at never-ending war since Korea in the 1950s, all for no tangible results.
