The efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have ground to a halt. The Netanyahu government clearly has no interest in any agreement that would require it to give up the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority has no interest in negotiating until the Israeli government demonstrates willingness to negotiate seriously over the West Bank. And the Obama administration has no interest in doing anything that would offend those donors to the Democratic Party who, in theory at least, would cut off campaign donations, if Netanyahu is pressured in any way.
