The meeting focused on the U.S.-led direct peace talks between the sides, which resumed in July.

"The one place (in the region) where there's a possibility for an island of stability ... is between the Palestinian people and the Israeli people, in two secure states respecting one another's sovereignty and security," Biden told Peres in remarks relayed by the White House.

"And the president believes and I believe that this is one of those opportunities, one of those moments in history where it has to be seized," he added.

Biden admitted there were some "very difficult decisions" ahead, but expressed confidence that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was "up to" the task and expressed hope that the same was true of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

"Israel's ultimate security rests in a genuine accommodation with the Palestinians that it is born out of secure borders that are peaceful," he said during the meeting with Peres.

I used to watch Mr. Ed every day as a kid. Loved the witty, ironic things that that horse could say, using his mouth. Now the TV news shows us two talking horses' asses, both visiting Israel incessantly. They are not witty at all, and the irony is unconscious, as are they.

“Peace” would mean the expulsion of tens of thousands of Jews from their homes in Judaea and Samaria.

Whoever goes along with such a notion in Washington and Jerusalem is out of touch with reality.

And for G-d’s sake, give Joe Biden his Hawaiian pork dinner this time. He won’t notice anything, so long as he’s got pineapple and pig on his plate.

“Peace” to a liberal is giving them everything they want then giving them some more.

Wow, according to Biden, it’s Israel’s fault that there is no peace with murderous, Israel-hating Palestinians.

I am sure he has nothing but Israel's Best Intentions at heart, which is why his Administration is arming Muslin Radicals in Syria to wage war on ISRAEL!!!

It’s like sitting in a box seat having read the end of the script. These people have no idea of who wrote the screen play nor have the any clue as to the ending.

Teenage boys seize their moment quite often. Then they grow up and get married.

When the Dims make peace with the American citizens, and stop pushing them into corners....he can ask the Jews to make peace with those that want to kill them.

Did you hear what Biden said at the funeral? “He left us too soon”. About an 85 year old who’s been in a coma for the last 8 years. Another “stand up” comment from Uncle Joe!

I thank God every day that He chose me. The phrase “but for the grace of God there go I” means more today to me than ever before.

Someone should inform Slow Joe how the perpetually aggrieved Arab parties define peace. I don’t think the word means what he thinks it does.
