Peace talks have failed in the past because one side wanted peace and the other side wanted Israel.”

Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) said, “Middle East negotiations should proceed with caution . . . While all Americans hope for a lasting peace in the region, the American people cherish our ally Israel and the security of Israel must come first…. The Annapolis Summit saga continues based on 5 misconceptions….

That Palestinian society can be reformed by outsiders

That economic assistance to the Palestinians can alleviate political problems

That Mahmoud Abbas can become the agent for change and therefore he deserves the support of the West

That Palestinian society can be quickly transformed into a good neighbor of Israel and that a stable settlement is within reach

That Hamas control of Gaza can be uprooted by inter-Palestinian politics.
