certainty of success.
the Palestinians have turned down repeated Israeli peace offers over the past
to Secretary of State John Kerry for his current effort to reach peace between
Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Is it worth
this new effort? Absolutely.
Secretary Kerry said at AJC last June, when he launched his quest:
mistake: The President and I share your unshakeable commitment to Israel’s
security…. The best way to truly ensure Israel’s security today and for future
generations is by ending once and for all the conflict with the Palestinians,
by summoning the courage to achieve peace, and by reaching a negotiated
resolution that results in two states for two peoples, each able to fulfill
their national aspirations in a homeland of their own.“
