« Scenes from Sderot (A Continuing Series) | Main | Legacy Lunacy »

December 21, 2007



While I'm sympathetic to the idea that President Bush should visit Sderot, there's no way he'd be allowed to for security reasons.

A statement like, "If the Palestinian Authority ever secures its territory from attacking Israel so that I could safely visit Sderot, that would be significant sign that it was committed to peace," might be possible. But I wouldn't expect that either.

The title of this piece reminded me of this.

I would have to add one other core issue that will prevent a successful conclusion of final status negotiations: recognition by the Palestinians of Israel's right to exist as a Jewish State. If that does not occur, then any "final agreement" is just a postponement of the next armed conflict. Since in my assessment the current Palestinian leadership cannot and will not acknowledge the legitimacy of a Jewish state, final status negotiations are pointless.


How can Palestine be a failed state when, since 1948 it's never been a state ?
