I think that the US should assist in mediating negotiations toward a resolution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Throughout history the US has both slacked off and taken intense approaches and the result is even more complication. In terms of the two state v. one state approach, I am not sure what to suggest, because there are flaws and complications in both approaches. It is important to remember through the process though is that we don’t fall into Jerusalem syndrome, which for Americans comes when we think that we can save the world. Something that I think is important to remember is that in our foreign policy we should listen and learn and not feed into antisematic beliefs that for long have plagued the US and our foreign policy.
