Today's Depressing Read: Ha'aretz

The war edition of Ha'aretz landed on doorsteps.  The list of articles included:

No chance of peace with Palestinians in near future (link)

Lieberman: Palestinians may try to form autonomous Arab regions within Israel (link)

Poll: 76% of American Jews think Arabs want to destroy Israel (link)

Palestinian official: PA will never recognize Israel as Jewish state (link)

Netanyahu asking Palestinians to cede right of return (link)

U.S. after Netanyahu proposal: Our position on settlements hasn’t changed (link)
Not only is this the most reluctant peace negotiation, it stands to grow by magnitudes with the addition of Lebanon and Syria.  Is Rube Goldberg behind this? Or is the intent to keep parties at the negotiating table long enough for America and its 51st state attack Iran's nuclear facilities?  Time and bombs will tell.
