The Obama administration seems to be coming to terms with what just about everybody else knows: the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is just as stalemated as ever.
After Secretary of State Clinton’s swing through the region this week, a State Department spokesman conceded the obvious - “things have stalled.”
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) called for a "bright spotlight" on anti-Semitic messages and calls to martyrdom directed at Palestinian children that "create a new generation of terrorists" in her address to the AIPAC policy conference Tuesday in Washington. Describing a hearing with a representative of the Palestinian Authority, Clinton said she told him, "Using children as pawns in a political process is tantamount to child abuse, and we must say it has to end now."
