Reader comment on item: One Cheer for Obama's Arab-Israeli Policy

Submitted by attaturk (United States), Sep 16, 2009 at 08:58

All right Mr. Pipes - for once we agree. I haven't seen you write such a well balanced piece in a very long time. Without a doubt the inclusion of other Arab states in this quid pro quo could legitimize all parties involved. Both sides seek recognition - Egypts position is counter - productive - if they want West Bank construction to cease then give the Israeli's something and if other Arab states will prepare their populations for acceptance of Israel as a fact and act in such a fashion as to establish they believe this, then the extremists on the Palestinian side could well be isolated. It's been a long time since I've said this, but Bravo, sir.
