Israel and Palestinian Envoys Talk about Talks

Israeli and Palestinian officials have been meeting in Amman, Jordan to try and reignite stalled peace talks. The talks can't actually be called "talks" because of various diplomatic corners folks have painted themselves into (most notably, Palestinian refusal to negotiate prior to a settlement freeze). But the point is it represents some sort of defrosting, and that can only be a good thing.

Of course, this means the usual suspects are trying to undermine these proto-talks. But that's always going to be part of the landscape.
