    September 2, 2014 | 10:00 am

    A week after the guns fell silent in the Gaza war, Israel and the Palestinians seem to have little appetite or incentive for a return to U.S.-sponsored peace and statehood talks that collapsed five months ago.

    By Marty Kaplan

    August 25, 2014 | 12:20 am
