Israel has been the aggressor and has established its military and economic power over Palestine. Palestine is a land of contained, oppressed people that have very little negotiating power. Israel and Palestine could be effective economic partners, but that must be achieved in an atmosphere of equality and autonomy. The Saudi 2002 Plan provides the basis for negotiations. The first steps in the process to build trust would be for Israel to reduce checkpoints significantly, open settlements and Israeli highways for Palestinians, allow family reunification. Palestinians have a fear of Israel not being just, and they have no powerful sponsor. As a result, there is the risk of being given an ungovernable state doomed to failure. Palestine needs a strengthened position to negotiate effectively. It would be well for Israel to demonstrate efforts to repair years of occupation, and to have a sponsor step forward to assist Palestine. The USA can make that happen.
