I'm still here, just lazy. Although I did have an entry yesterday on the American Thinker blog. I speculated that the United States may lose its ability to act as an intermediary between the Palestinians and Israel if the Israelis decide we are no longer trustworthy.
The deterioration in trust is a very bad thing, but abandoning efforts at peace negotiations wouldn't be - they haven't worked for 40 years, and there's no reason to think they would now. Might as well save the air travel!
