The Israel-Palestinian Authority (PA) peace process is dead, according to Martin Indyk, formerly the U.S. special Middle East envoy who resigned from his post last week.
Speaking to The Atlantics Jeffrey Goldberg in his first interview since stepping down, Indyk said that there is strong dislike between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
"There is a deep loathing of each leader for the other that has built up over the years," Indyk said in the interview, which was published Thursday.
"'Loathing' may be too strong [a word] for how Netanyahu feels about Abu Mazen (Abbas -ed.)," he later clarified, "but it's certainly the way Abu Mazen feels about Netanyahu. He refers to him as 'that man.'"
Indyk further said that he felt nervous following the latest violence following the murders of three Israeli teens by terrorists.
"I fear the worst here," he told The Atlantic. "What you've got now is ... a more rapidly deteriorating situation in which all of the worst fears and worst assumptions about the other side are being confirmed."
Indyk rejected the notion that the Obama administration frittered away precious diplomatic energy on a long-elusive Mideast peace agreement while Syria and Iraq imploded, arguing that Kerry and others didn't forsake those other regional issues.

In related news, the Chicago Cubs are 12.5 games out of first place in their division, casting doubt on their legitimacy as World Series contenders.
Indyk is one of the reasons the “peace process” failed. He long ago forget that the Palestinians are the “new Nazis” and they plan to exterminate the Jews of Israel, along with some of the Christians and maybe the Bedouins too.
He obviously never read their Covenant or other public statements, plus the fact that Abbas was a Hitler admirer but trained at the Soviet Union/KGB operatives school, Lumumba University.
Scratch a major communist leader or Middle Eastern terrorist, and you’ll find the Lumumba University cited on their CV.
Go to the site “www.USAsurvival.org” and look for the articles on how the KGB helped create the PLO and aided other Arab terrorist groups and governments. A real eye opener.
Because the air is so full of this poison that people are breathing it without even realizing it.
