This is required reading for president Obama and secretary of state Kerry. But I suspect that they already are aware of what needs to happen. For now they are still trying to please the stronger party and think that by leaning on the weaker Palestinian partner, the latter will give in. It is a cowardly approach, which the Palestinians should resist with all their might. They should go and seek support in the international fora and fight a non-violent struggle against apartheid. The Palestinians will get a lot of support for this and it will push the Americans to finally tell Israel that the two state solution based on the 1949 armistice lines needs to be implemented with small mutually agreed corrections. This was what UNSCR 242 meant in the first place.
