How astonishing it is that people accuse Israel of obstructing peace efforts, as if the failure were simply the fault of one side. During the Camp David negotiations, President Clinton told Arafat: "If the Israelis can make compromises and you can't, I should go home. You have been here fourteen days and said no to everything." ("Camp David: The Tragedy of Errors," Robert Malley and Hussein Agha, New York Review of Books, August 9, 2001). Does this mean the Israelis have never obstructed peace? No. Does it mean we should try to examine both sides and their contribution to the problems in making peace, rather than blame the Israelis for everything? Yes.
