Time for Israel to Take Risks for Peace

Ultimately there can be no military solution to this crisis. Israel needs a strategy for building peace and not just tactics for winning the next round of war.

News of a cease-fire is, of course, to be welcomed. However, this is not the end of the diplomatic work but only the beginning. This temporary truce must now be turned into a durable peace if we are not, in time, to witness even more suffering and loss of life.
