    I think it is past high time for the whole world to stop begging the Israelis and Palestinians to make a deal through intermediaries and wash collective hands of them.  There are much bigger international challenges than those two sides present: climate change, international poverty come to mind, just to name two.
    When the "mediators" the Group of 6 or whatever, want a deal more than the parties do, a deal will never happen.
    Stop paying so much attention to them, and let them decide what they want to do.
    And that also means no more military assistance or money for Israel.  BTW, I advocate no military assistance for any Middle east power, not Israel, not Egypt, not Saudi Arabia, etc.  I know, naive because our economy is a permanent war economy but one can dream.
