Peace = impossible for Israel and Palestine?

Ponder over this quote for a while:

I will tell him [Mitchell] clearly: there are many conflicts in the world that haven’t reached a comprehensive solution and people have learned to live with this.

Delivered by none other than Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s Foreign Minister, this really is a telling sign of how the Israeli government seems to be viewing the peace process: with a sense of been there done that, no way, Jose. Robert Fisk’s latest opinion peace got a lot of flak this afternoon on Twitter but I really do think he had one thing right, that Obama’s fairly naive to believe that the Israeli government will adhere to his demands.
