"If you want to push the peace process you don't need an international gathering. You need the parties to start talking on issues that relate to the core of the conflict. So far, Israel has refrained from dealing with the core issues."
"Most Palestinians believe the American role is very biased. They are by no means neutral facilitators. America has its own interests in the region. Those interests do not include putting pressure on Israel to reach a settlement that will satisfy the Palestinians."
