    I don't disagree and am not "whooping". I think Lieberman somehow has this rigged.

        I used to be so hopeful. Now.... Not at all. But you know who says he has hope? Dennis Ross.... Go figure.

        "The question is, what do you do to restore faith. For me the issue is not a lose of confidence, but a lose of belief on both sides. The Israeli public doesn't believe that the Palestinians are committed to the two-state solution and the Palestinians don't believe that Israel is committed to two states." ...

        ..."I think there should be preliminary negotiations, but I also think that if you can't handle the issue of disbelief, than I can't see how you can overcome the obstacles that you face right now. The disbelief adds to the deterioration and it feeds itself. It's difficult even to explore if something could be done differently. We should break these dynamics."

        Ross refuses to accept that the window of opportunity to strike peace between Israel and the PA may have already closed.

        "I don't accept that premise for a simple reason: I don't see what the alternative is," he said, adding that Israel cannot "make the Palestinians go away" any more than the Palestinians can do so vis-à-vis Israel.
