    Zealots, whether Muslim or Jewish, pose the greatest threat to Middle East stability. A peace with justice for the Palestinians helps resolve that threat. For that reason, the USA and the EU have worked aggressively in that direction. There are many Israelis that are committed to justice and an enduring peace. They see the survival of Israel intertwined with Middle East peace. It is time for Israeli leadership to demonstrate the courage needed to assure a conflict resolution that restores 1967 borders with an independent, free Palestine. The vast majority of Palestinians will sustain peace once the threat of settler zealotry with IDF support ends. It is not too late for peace, and Israel can help it occur.
