Barack Obama announced today that extremists, rejectionists seeking destruction along with Hamas are not going to stop the peace process.
Huh? Isn’t that the purpose of the peace process?… To stop the terror attacks and killings?

Direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations broke off nearly two years ago, in December 2008, and the Obama administration spent its first 20 months in office coaxing the two sides back to negotiations. Obama was adamant Wednesday that extremist violence would not derail the process.
“There are going to be extremists and rejectionists who, rather than seeking peace, are going to be seeking destruction,” he said. “The United States is going to be unwavering in its support of Israel’s security. And we are going to push back against these kinds of terrorist attacks. And so the message should go out to Hamas and everyone else who is taking credit for these heinous crimes that this is not going to stop us.”
Expectations for the Washington talks are low, yet the consequences of failure are high. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a constant source of grievance and unrest in the Muslim world. The failure of past peace efforts has left both sides with rigid demands and public ambivalence about the value of a negotiated settlement.
Dan Friedman added: “What greater incentive to kill Jews do the butchers need?”
