The Paris Peace Gambit: Everyone Gains except the Palestinians

Ramzy Baroud, Middle East Monitor

[T]he French peace initiative-turned-conference in Paris on June 3 is nothing but a charade, and they all know it, Palestinians included. ...
The Israelis rejected the initiative right away, without even bothering with a public diplomacy campaign to defend their position, as they often do. ...
Even if – and when – the long-awaited ‘resumption of negotiations’ arrive, nothing good is likely to come out from it, except for political dividends for those who have participated in the 25-year gambit: buying time and acquiring more funds. There is nothing to celebrate about this.
