There was no discernible excitement over the announcement that Palestinians and Israelis will hold a first round of direct talks next month in Washington.

The political opposition and popular apathy reflect the widespread lack of faith Palestinians have that these negotiations will be conducted in good faith under a neutral mediator. Do you have high hopes for a resolution at the Palestinian/ Israeli peace talks? Tell us what you think?
