I learned a lot about big peace plans and summits in last 20 plus years. Don’t try them at home; they could result in serious injuries.

Notion that Trump is applying tons of honey to Bibi so that when he asks Israel to swallow the vinegar it will go down easier or raise costs of not swallowing it, would be a negotiator's strategy not a politician's. Besides why fight with Israel when you know Abbas will say no?

US Ambassador to Israel tells Barak Ravid US peace plan will take a another few months. Trust me on this one, this plan is like a root canal operation. There will never be a good time.

Best thing that ever happened to US-NK diplomacy is Trump's wake-up call -- for whatever reason -- that denuke won't come easy or fast. Having helped plan a few presidential summits, make or break approach invariably leads to the latter.

It's neither right nor wrong; it's reality. Israel has no partner in Syria and no prospect of one.

When we took what Rabin offered --full withdrawal from the Golan --o Assad in July 1993, Assad balked. Rabin's clear preference was for a Golan deal. When Assad through Christopher came back w/o enough for Rabin, he let Peres move ahead on the Oslo track.

Yes for sure. But there's a new angle now. See attached on what might have happened had we succeeded in getting Assad and Israel into an agreement. What if Israel had given up Golan

US to recognize sovereignty over Golan, even Israel hasn't done that yet? I can see a 1/2 where Israel moves and US endorses. Another freebee for Bibi to get him to say yes but to the Kushner plan.

5 myths on Trump's Jerusalem Decision. Let's retire them now; and at least be honest about what's up and down.

•President Trump’s “new” Iran strategy outlines demands that Iran is unlikely to accept and that the Trump administration lacks the capacity to achieve. Read my main takeaways on Sec. Pompeo's recent speech:

Having helped plan four presidential summits, assurances are important. But... what really matters is substance and whether you can create a balance of interests between you and other guy. That's what matters.

History, Twain wrote doesn't repeat so much as rhyme. Don't rush a an NK summit. We did at Camp David in July 2000 and Israelis and Palestinian let alone peace process, hasn't yet recovered

Love you Hussein. But the Israelis for whom I have deep regard are masters of threat inflation at times. I am persuaded they are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves.
