An American playwright has penned a gripping tale about an Israeli Arab killed in the October 2000 events — and his steadfast sister.02:58 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Akiva, shalom! I would like to confine my comments to the territorial issues. If there will be a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians, it won't be a treaty signed by the head of Meretz although I am not sure that even Meretz will be able to reach a peace treaty with the Palestinians. Here is my point, the peace process is what it says, a process. Had President Bush and Secretary Rice pursued the matter with the same vigor and dedication as President Clinton did at Camp David, we might have had a deal, if not a resolution of all issues, at least a resolution of most of the issues separating the parties. I firmly believe that if Kadima were to win, warts and all, during a period when Obama was in power, then it is likely that President Obama would by knocking some heads together achieve some kind of a comprehensive agreement between the parties even if some loose ends will remain that would have to wait for a later date to be resolved. That is why I believe that the odds are favorable that an agreement would be reached between Israel and the Palestinians if Monsieur Netanyahu would be replaced by Madam Livny during the tenure of President Obama. In any case, your intense criticism of Kadima while ignoring any responsibility that the Palestinians may have in failing to reach an agreement is terribly, terribly unfair and can only encourage a sense of triumphalism that does not bode well for the peace process.
