Good luck with that

Yisrael HaYom, a Hebrew daily that is distributed free at traffic lights here in Jerusalem, and that has a web site that only allows you to flip through the paper (as far as I could tell) reports that Special Middle East Envoy George Mitchell has postponed his next trip to our region to the end of July in the hope that he will be able to present 'gestures' from the Arab world by then.
Yisrael Hayom correspondents Boaz Bitmot and Shlomo Tzena report in today's edition that "Yesterday it was made known that [US special Middle East] envoy George Mitchell's visit to Israel was postponed to the end of the month as he is also waiting for gestures from the Arab world. Originally the envoy was supposed to come for a visit this week or next week - but yesterday the Americans announced that the visit would only take place at the end off the month."
Good luck with that.

I wonder what would happen if the Americans announced that Mitchell won't come here until they get some 'gestures' from the Arab world and that they are satisfied that they are significant. My guess is that we wouldn't see Mitchell for a long time.

I hope he never comes back. None of the Arab "gestures" (easily reversible) are worth abrogating Jewish rights to Yesha.

What could go wrong indeed

I know exactly the gesture the Arab will give. It consists of the middle finger of one's hand pointed skyward.
