A few days ago, I met a couple of fellows from Ireland, one of whom had family from Derry, Northern Ireland. As we talked about George Mitchell and the prospects for the peace process, he made an important point: during the Northern Ireland peace process, the facts on the ground changed as talks went forward, giving republicans a reason to keep talking. How about the same in Palestine? So far, the settlements and the wall just grow and grow.
