Upcoming meeting among Obama, Netanyahu, and Abbas

According to Haaretz this morning, expect no more than a nice photo-op.  Perhaps they're trying to lower expectations, but I've seen nothing reported anywhere that leads me to have hope for significant development.  And as Stephen Walt expressed so eloquently in the WaPo over the weekend, without some significant push from Obama, his previous acclaimed outreach will come to nothing.  Actually, it'll be worse than nothing, because he did indeed raise hopes.

From "Yes we can," it may be time to resurrect Jesse Jackson's old mantra: "Keep hope alive!"  But, day by day, even that's becoming tougher to do.
