is unsustainable that it is dangerous for israel, that it is bad for palestinians bad for the region and bad for america's national security. and you know, i came into this office wanting to do everything i could to encourage serious peace talks between israelis and palestinians. and we invested a lot of energy, a lot of time, a lot of effort. first year, second year, all the way until last year. ultimately, what has always been clear is that we cannot force the parties to arrive at peace, what we can do is facilitate, provide a platform, encourage, but we can't force them to do it.
