What about US inconsistency?

Reader comment on item: The Way to Peace

Submitted by PezDispenser (Israel), Dec 20, 2016 at 10:21

At face value, conservative Republican administrations might go along with this grand policy to a certain extent (Bush played peace-processor), but if every eight years on average a Democrat takes over, one could expect pressure for concessions again.

Therefore, even if Israel gets her act together, how could the country maintain a stern posture vis-a-vis the Palestinians over decades if US support for this policy will wax and wane?

Daniel Pipes replies:

Good question.

My reply: American liberals and conservatives have alike supported the inane "peace process," so why not hope and work for both to support something much better?
