Shouldn't there be in place an a-priori commitment of BOTH parties to the conflict, to recognize a 2-state solution, to recognize each others' right to exist as sovereign entities, and to begin implementing this at the constitutional (charter) level, mass media and education? Sure, peace is made between enemies, but does this include an enemy with a stated objective (at the government level) to utterly destroy the other? Finally, in reality only Israel and Palestine can mutually vote each other into existence and this seems to me to be the most fundamental factor. Oslo came close and in this respect the ball really is in Palestinian hands. I'm hoping this is one of the pillars of J Street policy along with the coercion they direct at Israel to do its part. Is J Street underplaying a focal issue or am I missing something?
