    Let us not be politically correct. Abbas and the Palestinians are not going to say what he really think, which is, that you need some diversity in that position. Having a Jewish Ambassador to Israel and a Jewish envoy is unfair to Palestinians and will not get the peace process, such as it is, going. If Indyk had any good ideas on the subject, he would have convinced the Israelis to adopt them a long time ago. Instead, he coddled their every whim. So why recycle those who had their chance and failed? Main reason there is no peace is that three administrations thought it was a good idea to recycle Dennis Ross, even though he was a miserable failure and started with zero experience in the Middle East. Read his first book to see how unfair he was to Palestinians. We need new thinking on the Palestinians-Israeli issue. How about some Scandinavian Americans? How about appointing scholars who are not tied to either Palestinians or Israelis. How about appointing young people with new ideas.
