As the same time, Israeli hard-liners, including Foreign Minister/Deputy Prime Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon, and perhaps Netanyahu oppose an apology in any form to resolve the ongoing stalemate.

How it ends isn't known. What's clear is that both sides want resolution, though it's hard seeing how satisfying one party will please the other. At the same time, compromise in some form is how all diplomatic deadlocks are ended, especially when both sides are equally matched.

Whatever the outcome, however, grieving families won't ever again see lost loved ones, or ever forgive Israeli commandos for killing them.

A Final Comment

When agreed, the 1993 Oslo Accords were a take or leave it deal, Palestinians getting virtually nothing in return for surrendering its sovereignty to Israel. Thereafter, it was all downhill.

Nonetheless on July 4, Haaretz writer Akiva Eldar headlined, "The Oslo Accords are all but dead, " saying:

Israeli settlement construction on stolen Palestinian land continues unabated. Nonetheless, pro-Israeli hardliner/Clinton advisor Dennis Ross wants Palestinians to abandon independence. In return, he says, Netanyahu may negotiate a final-status agreement, in fact, as meaningless as Oslo because settlement expansions won't end, nor will Palestinians get rights so far denied.

In fact, Oslo stipulated that final status was to be resolved 13 years ago. "The time has come," said Eldar, "to put the Oslo Accords out of their misery," though doing so won't end Palestinian suffering.
