Uh-Oh-----Here We Go Again

Reader comment on item: The Paradoxical Peril of Warm U.S.-Israel Relations

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Jun 2, 2017 at 11:42

As they say---you only make peace with your enemy not your friend and there is not enough defeat on one side or the other to make peace overtures desirable. The Israelis can live with the status quo and the PLO sees no need for a peace initiative because there's always a better deal around the corner and currently the West Bank is doing pretty well. Right now geopolitics is in a state of flux and until it all settles out everyone will march in place!
