1. Dennis needs a peace consultant gig
Rachel ,   US   (12.15.12)
2. Ross is naive, This Israeli goverement
Dan ,   NJ   (12.15.12)
does not believe in two state solution and even say so in Hebrew to its voters. Either he is naïve or plays stupid.
3. Why ?
Dan M. ,   USA   (12.15.12)
Why should Israel ever trust the Palestinians, Obama or Ross. ? There is no proven reason to ever do so.
4. WHY???
les ,   canada   (12.15.12)
5. No demographic threat
Chris ,   Austria   (12.15.12)
Israeli people are smart enough don't buy this old story about demography. Independent research demonstrates that it's not an issue. What peace Mr.Ross are talking about? From the beginning it was a process for Israel distraction.
6. Mr. Ross, please shut up!
Rachel Rabin ,   TA, Israel   (12.15.12)
Why does Mr. Ross continue spewing nonsense? The peace plan is known to all. The final settlement is known to all. There is no need to continue "negotiations" and the "peace process". That's a Zionist Likudnik TRICK to talk, talk, talk, and do nothing. Time to act and execute the plan that everybody knows is the end game. Peace to all (without Mr. Ross's help or intervention)!!!!
7. What is wrong with people?
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (12.15.12)
C'mon people face reality that the "Peace Process", if there ever was one, is DEAD!!! It died with Yassir Arafat's rejection of a Palestinian state during the Clinton Administration. To make sure it remained dead, Hamas overthrew the PA in Gaza seizing control and turning Gaza into a terrorist haven. People can we all take a reality break together and admit and understand that after almost 65 YEARS the "Peace Process" is as real as is the Easter Bunny.
8. Make no mistake.
Jules   (12.15.12)
For the Arabs, the "peace process" is just a method to destroy Israel and push the Jewish people to the Med.
9. Israel needs Victory Process. Not phony "peace process".
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.15.12)
Israel has suffered far too many rockets, maimed and murdered civilians due to the phony "peace process" with those who'd love to mass murder us. Israel needs a true Victory Process to foster their prompt permanent departure from our land.
10. Do What America Did...
ACortez ,   Anaheim, CA, USA   (12.15.12)
And kill enough of the pals so that they don't take over just like America did with the native Americans. The muslims and europeans did it to Jews for centuries so payback is a b*t*h.
11. The So-Called Palestinians
ltrail ,   United States   (12.15.12)
The situation is such where the so-called palestinians do not want to negotiate anything. Why should they? their media has painted them as the persecuted. But the world's peoples know who they are. Either the so-called palestinians begin to enhance the economy of Israel, or they must move on; as they have historically.
12. Ross is an ignorant fool
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.15.12)
Negotiations during elections are ILLEGAL here. Second the Arabs have already destroyed any chance for peace with their total violation of very single provision of every treaty the fascists have ever signed. No Mr. Ross - the new government is not going to surrender to the terrorists either.
13. to Ross:
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (12.15.12)
How can you restore something, that never was ? Faith ? Peace ? We only have faith in our ability and necessity to defend our right to exist on the land of our Fathers... Israel has always complied and respected every agreement we signed, no matter how painful...The minute, the palis will recognize the right of Israel to exist, Israel will meet them half-way... As usual, Ross is pressing the wrong button...You need two to "tango", Mr. Ross..And unless you start "pressing" the right buttons, this will be another fiasco in the string of too many...
14. No more lies no more Negotiation
Joe Stein ,   USA   (12.15.12)
I'm sick of this stuff these So called peace experts say i dont want no more negotiations . These treaties are paper treaties that are torn up when ever the world ants.
15. Hmmm....this feels about as credible as when...
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (12.15.12)
...the players in the English National Soccer Team say "Yes, we CAN win the World Cup"
16. Ross the Exponent.......
Gideon Reader   (12.15.12)
...of failed theories, rides again. Any single example of Democrat Dennis being even somewhat correct in his analysi. Ever? Oslo? "Disengagement"? Any-freaking-thing? This sludge feeder is Tom Friedman with an extra four inches in height, and the desire to display his equally poor common sense. His parents must be so proud.
17. Ross just wants to think he is relevant.
Devorah   (12.15.12)
18. When Will F35 Eagles Arrive in Israel?
Noah Lev ,   LosAngelesUSA   (12.15.12)
Lets face reality, time is noton theside ofthe Jews, surrounded by 500m Arabs in a world of 1.4b Muslim, and people like those students in Canada which jost foted yes on bycotting and divesting from Israel. 6m Israeli Jews and another 8m worldwide, can never defet the Muslims. Never. Israel has 500 nukes, and would, most likelyk destroy the arab world, if they launched their oft threatened "Jihad", or as Iran says, "wipe them off the map".But other thanthe US. over Japan, nukes have never been used by anyone. For good reasons If 6m Israelis cannot handle 5m Palestinians and end the conflict, what does that say? If the Pales wanted peace, they would end their 67 demands..allow Israel the majorsettlements and contorl over most of E.Jerusalem. (not the holy sites-Muslim or heavy Arab areas). But this is NOT their goal, said repeatedly by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah which Charlie Rose thinks will cave in once there is peace. ( and I will sell you a bridge to Brooklyn ). .Every poll shows the Arabs support suicide bombings, "resistance", and a 1 state solurion sans most Jews. The tactic by them is to play chess..not worry over the individual pi8eces..its the queen they want, (Bibis head on a pole over Ramallah or Gaza City). Oh, and Baraks, Peres, Livni, Olmert, Lieberman.Dont believe me, see reaction now to female IDF solders brave action against a terrorist. They want her hung.
19. US Troops Manning Patriots
Noah Lev ,   LosAngelesUSA   (12.15.12)
The only way to end thisconflict, is for the main players, Israel and the Arab Palestinians (within the territories) to sit down and talk about everything. UN242 is the best starterl bothsides agreeingto secure borders as best as conceivable with missile now), no collective rightof return per UN242 but individuals okay, some control by Israel of the Jordan border and no heavy weapons in the new state. Also, Arabs resding in Plaestine will be equal citizens of that country, with no right of return. Jews who fled the Muslim world and their offspring, will be entitled to compensation. Just as the US sending troops to Turkey, I would include Israel in NATO if specific countries attacked her (like Iran). U"S troops in Israel manning Patriots will send Ahmad a message, folks.
20. national interest
sam ,   colorado-USA   (12.15.12)
Majority of Talkbacks for this article or all of, I didn't found anyone praise this man and they all opposed to what he says, I think they have a strategic failure and don't have the foresight, just they look under their feet and not look forward they do not know anything about the national interest
21. To be fair, its his job not to give up...
Nick Sporek ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (12.15.12)
...even if it seems a hopeless endeavour.
22. When will Ross wake up and realize the truth about the PLO?
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.15.12)
The PLO/Fatah does not want peace. They say so over and over in Arabic and to their supporters. The name squares after terrorist, brainwash their children to embrace terror and speak openly about destroying Israel, and yet after all this Dennis Ross thinks there is a chance for peace? He makes no sense. Jerusalem and Refugees into Israel are not on the table, and the PA controlled areas are a heart beat from being taken over by Hamas. The moment Israel moves out, Hamas moves in. It's time for the US to announce that OSLO was a mistake a complete failure.
23. this is code for
frank ,   rehovot   (12.15.12)
israel must give more and get less!
24. # 19 You missed the point.
Jules   (12.15.12)
This conflict is not territorial but religious. According to Islam, all of Palestine, once occupied (by the Ottomans), now belongs to the Muslims only. Any thought of a Jewish state on that land is a blasphemy to the Muslims. For that reason they will never accept Israel's right to exist.
25. Dennis Ross LOL Yeah, ya' did a real good job, LOL
big bad Jew ,   United States   (12.15.12)
Only the insane keep trying to do what can't be done. End this charade, there will be no pal state and the USA above all 'allies' should know this. BUILD BABY BUILD !!!
26. Mr Ross, I'll wager $ 10,000.00 that you can't achieve peace
big bad Jew ,   United States   (12.15.12)
Who wound up the key to this play toy again, the Arabs who can't accept Israel owning, building, and being the sole authority of, in, and for the Israeli people, or obama, their 'Man in Washington'? Either way, it is going to end as all of these empty talks do, and end there fast with no end in sight. One way to a lasting peace, BUILD BABY BUILD !!!!
27. they talk about a third intifada mr Denis Ross
dovdevan ,   ashdod,paris   (12.15.12)
after the last war in gaza where hamas pretend to have won. the palestinians from the west bank are talking about a third intifada under the unfluence of hamas and with the approbation of abbas !! peace wasn't possible with PLO regarding the concessions that were made from Barak to Olmert peace will be impossible with a growing hamas in the west bank !!
28. Dennis Ross thinks he is the "Messiah" ?
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (12.15.12)
Does he really think that he can revive the dead because the "Peace Process" died when Abu Mazen said he wants Palestine to be Jew Free, a term taken from the Nazis "Judenrein"! As a Jew Dr. Ross, you know all about that! The "Peace Process" was kill in Itamar when the Vogel family were butchered while they slept and each an every time Aby Mazen's people attack our soldiers, kill and injure OUR people another nail is driven into the coffin of "Peace Process" which is in a state of total decomposition! Many blame Netanyahu and his Government for the demise of the Peace Process but the REAL fact is that the Palestinians, both on the West Bank and in Gaza, do NOT want peace and it is time that Obama, Cameron, Hollande, Merkel and Co woke up to this fact and to the fact the we Jews, Left, Right or Center will not lie down and let Holocaust II happen while the world watches and bathes in Arab Oil!
29. The more I hear of this 'peace process'
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.15.12)
The more it sounds like a religion. I guess in a way to the leftists and racists of the world it is their religion d'jure. Ross and company sound just like Neville Chamberlain did with 'peace in our time'.
30. Peace process can be revived
Franklin Paredes ,   Quito, Ecuador   (12.15.12)
The best solution is 1. One state solution (Israel) with Judea and Samaria. Two state solution is not a solution, but a road to war
