How's that re-set Barack? Putin praises Abu Bluff's approach to 'peace'

Pressing that re-set button with the Russians has sure done wonders to make them helpful with the 'peace process.' Tuesday saw Russian President Vladimir Putin praising the approach of 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen to the 'peace process.' That approach has consisted of refusing nearly all negotiations for the last three and a half years.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, praising him for his approach to the peace process.

Speaking following the leaders' meeting in Bethlehem, Putin said that the "Palestinian leadership, and the president personally, have been behaving responsibly to achieve peace based on the two-state solution."

Putin said that the Soviet Union had recognized a Palestinian state in 1988 and Russia's view on the matter had not changed.

Abbas called for an international peace conference to take place in Moscow, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency.

The PA president reiterated his position that peace negotiations would not resume until Israel halted settlement activity.

According to Ma'an the two leaders also discussed efforts at Hamas-PA reconciliation.
I hope that Prime Minister Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Lieberman are happy that they built that huge monument to the Russian Red Army in Netanya. That gained them almost as much political capital with the Russians as Obama's 'reset button' gained him.

What could go wrong?

"...that huge monument to the Russian Red Army in Netanya"

Who was it dedicated to? The Unknown Russian Soldier Rapist in Berlin? The Red Army that did not come to the aid of the Warsaw Uprising? Or the Russian troops that carried out the Katyn Massacre? Or a more general tribute to the Red Army that forced a swap in Eastern Europe from a Nazi tyranny to a Communist tyranny?
