Reply To: Do you think the U.S. should assist in mediating negotiations toward a resolution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Why or why not?

Sarah, I agree that any mediation effort needs to be well-informed and nuanced. A simplistic approach that lacks deep cultural, religious, and political awareness is doomed to fail. While I do think a comprehensive peace deal is extremely unlikely at this time, the U.S. might find success in mediating smaller disputes between the two sides.
