A question that needs an answer

A good question from my friend Dan F:
To all “friends and defenders” of Israel, especially such high-profile shtarkers like Alan Dershowitz, the AJC’s David Harris, the CFR’s Elliot Abrams and Ed Koch: You have expressed disappointment and dismay that “the 20-year-old peace process” has not met its objective – peace. In fact, it has only led to war and bloodshed and, as we saw last week, Israel's diplomatic isolation and the PLO’s violation of the Oslo accords. Given this trajectory, how many more “peace” dead ends would it take before you start recommending that Israel abandon the "peace process" for another policy that would be less life-threatening and more productive?

Please express your answer as a time limit, number of occurrences, or a body count.
Hmmm.

I believe the best answer is from Barry Rubin's recent article "TO THOSE ALWAYS WRONG ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST AND WHO NEVER LOSE A GRAM OF ARROGANCE OR A MOMENT OF SLEEP OVER THE TRAGEDIES THEY CREATE" ...

His bottom line is "no thanks" to listening to any more "wrong" advice.
Is Israel prepared to make a break, even if it means breaking diplomacy with the U.S.? For her sake and all Israel's, at this point I would hope so ... the voices she hears from the WH should be a warning to reject any further "peace" talks.
