The article analyzes the peace talks being hosted by U.S. President Barack Obama for Israelis and Palestinians. Obama convinced the latter into direct talks by claiming that it would allow him to pressure Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu into an extension on the freeze in the settlements. Netanyahu has dismissed international pressures to continue the freeze and has not announced any specific proposal about future borders. However, it was realized that Israel is not prepared to for any peace agreement yet.
