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?

Looking at the US current status, and its economic and political might in geo-politics. I think the US is best suited to lead any form of mediation in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. The United States has all of the relevant instruments at her disposal. It is one of the powerful nations that has never clearly taken a side in the On-going Conflict, this alone guarantees that both nations will equally respect and value a US led Peace Discussions. Moreover America has so much potential to ensure a very positive mediation. It is understandable that things might not be resolved in a day, but a continuous US-led peace talk can lead to a very positive result.
