A sign of potential progress?

On Wednesday, I reported that Defense Minister Ehud Barak told a conference here in Israel that we should unilaterally withdraw from much of Judea and Samaria because we can't reach an agreement with the 'Palestinians.' The 'Palestinians' immediately came out against the idea, because there is no way we could give this spoiled 'people' enough to satisfy them, and they don't want to create any expectations that they might ever live in peace with us. Now, Hillary Clinton agrees with the 'Palestinians': There is no substitute for negotiations.
"We have discouraged unilateral action from both sides," said Clinton when asked about the possibility during a press conference while on trip to Denmark. "The United States believes there is no substitute for direct talks between the parties."


Clinton, however, said the new political environment in Israel gave some hope for movement in the peace process and that the US would be pushing for such momentum.

"This new coalition government in Israel provides the best opportunity in several years to reach such a negotiated agreement," she said.

Clinton noted that she had called both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to press them to take advantage of the "new opening" created by Israel's broad coalition.

"We’re going to continue to urge them to do so," she emphasized, pointing also to Israel's return of 91 bodies of Palestinian suicide bombers as another sign of potential progress.
I wonder whether Secretary Clinton also considers the 'Palestinian' celebration of the 'heroes' return to be another 'sign of potential progress.'

Let's go to the videotape. Keep in mind that each of those coffins contains a suicide bomber or other terrorist.

A sign of potential progress? Really? More here.
