Peace, Oslo Worked, does this?

In the 1990's things were better, the Palestinian Authority had a semblance of government, Clinton was a capable mediator, and tensions were reduced. That is about all that can be expected. A 2012 Ceasefire was a good idea. Some sort of interim deal should have come about in the last year, but Obama unreasonably insisted on a complete return to pre 1967 borders and Israel proposed little.

Now is this going to succeed. There are 1,000 murders a year in Chicago; why did this have to degenerate into an all out war. It seems like World War 1 where a series of miscalculations caused a prolonged and sad war.

There should be some type of ceasefire and work towards some type of interim agreement. Right lies somewhere between give up all the land and go back to 19676 and nothing will work but constant war. Mediation is needed to reduce conflict, tension, and loss of human life. Relative calm should not have been so easy to break.

Are you for real?

You must be kidding. Almost 2,000 Jews died because of the Oslo agreement. Clinton capable? Of what?
The Arabs don't want peace. Their charter calls for the complete destruction of Israel, G-d forbid.
If you are already on this web cite, so read the articles about Hamas. Yes, the Arabs wants "piece" - a piece of Jerususem, a piece of Haifa, of Tel Aviv, etc.
