Obama Says Odds of Reaching Israel-PA Peace Agreement Are ‘Less Than Fifty-Fifty’

avatar by

President Obama and PA leader Abbas. – U.S. President Barack Obama told The New Yorker magazine that the chances of the ongoing U.S.-brokered Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations resulting in a final peace agreement are less than 50 percent.

“Obama told me that in all three of his main initiatives in the region—with Iran, with Israel and the Palestinians, with Syria—the odds of completing final treaties are less than 50-50,” wrote The New Yorker editor David Remnick.

Yet Obama said, “In all three circumstances we may be able to push the boulder partway up the hill and maybe stabilize it so it doesn’t roll back on us.”
