I presume that talks would fail and after this explanation of what Kerry is doing I feel even more strongly that this will happen. That’s why the Israeli government has accepted this bad deal, believing–I think accurately–that the PA will make the talks fail. I understand why this option was taken–also because there might be American or European additional threats and promises; nobody can be as bad as Obama in future–but really this tactic is getting tired.
