The United States Must Recognize Palestine

The United States Must Recognize Palestine November 29, 2016

An ongoing concern of mine is the lack of awareness of the Palestine-Israel conflict among Americans. Indeed the American government has consistently blocked measures that could result in “a just and lasting peace.” Since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, no one diplomat has done more to bring peace to this region than Jimmy Carter. When he speaks or writes on this critically important issue we should listen and read in earnest. This morning he published an editorial in the New York Times. Enjoy the read. Perhaps it will serve as a springboard toward greater understanding of this conflict and how peace could be accomplished. If you’d like to read more, Carter’s book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” is excellent and very reader friendly. Be well.
