For months now there has not been much (if any) action on the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Track.
However, today the media here is citing sources saying that the Palestinians want a secret meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.
It makes sense that the negotiators would wait till after Land Day for the Palestinians. The day itself was last Friday, and both in Israel and most of the territories it passed quietly.
There were demonstrations and clashes here and there, and one Palestinian who was killed by Israeli fire.
Palestinian organizers had promised masses of people… they did not materialize.
This may be because of all the upheaval in the Arab world, which distracts from the drawn out conflict.
But this dispute can be solved through dialogue and diplomacy if the sides want to do it.
With all the talk about the uncertain futures of Iraq, Egypt, and Syria perhaps both sides would do well to approach things in a matter-of-fact way to forge an agreement and provide the future of stability for their children.
