"Israel must take risks for peace" does not translate to Israel must be forced into positions of disadvantage when there is not a chance of a snowball in Hades that Abbas' UN strategy will help move anything toward peace as he has no ability to offer Israel any guarantee of peace.

Mr Alexander's essay is a mess ad a disjointed failure to demonstrate any possible linkage between a peaceful solution to the conflict and his support for the UN stratagem.
