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?

Hello Hannah,

Thank you for sharing your insight with us. I particularly found helpful your explanation of the nuances in dealing with this conflict. For example, if the US is to get involved in helping in mediation the other interests we have in the Middle East would need to be clear to both Israelis and Palestinians to form transparency. As you mentioned, on the Israeli side the issue of security is always at the top of the list, and knowing that and other priorities the Palestinians have on the top of their list is paramount in making progress.
