Aiming for Israeli-Palestinian Peace – Elliott Abrams
(Daily Alert)

A comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement is not possible right now and there’s a better way forward. Realistic moves on the ground that help prepare the Palestinian people for statehood are in fact a better bet than the search for that elusive handshake on the White House lawn.

    Supporting the construction of a Palestinian state from the ground up, strengthening Palestinian institutions, and seeking pragmatic Israeli-Palestinian cooperation should be the center of U.S. policy now, not the handmaiden to a policy aimed at a comprehensive but currently unattainable final peace agreement. The writer, a former U.S. deputy national security adviser, is a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at CFR. (Council on Foreign Relations)
