Default Re: Discussion: North Africa & Southwest Asia Regional Issues II

I see both sides as going out of their way to effectively make peace impossible. Hamas refuses to recognize Israeli's right to exist, much less recognize it as a state. Not to mention attacking Israeli civilians.

Israel has no intention of stopping settlement of the West Bank, and while it pays lip service to the two-state solution, it does very little towards making it happen.

So there really is no peace process. Relations are only deteriorating, but no one wants to say it.
