Last Push for Peace before July 15th

I know this article is almost a week old, but I've been camping with the family and things have finally settled down after returning, putting everything away, and conquering the mountain of laundry. :)

Here is an article I found on regarding the Quartet, and their meeting in Washington D.C. on July 11th as a last-ditch effort to revive peace talks before the PA starts the statehood process with the UN on July 15th.

This is definitely something to watch in the coming days.  If this falls through, then "Palestine" might strong-arm its way into becoming a nation in September.  Abbas has already called Obama out, reasoning that if the President wants Israel to accept the 1967 armistice lines as the starting point to peace, then there should be no reason to veto the Palestinian state in September.

Whew!  We'll see where this all leads...
