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?

I think the US should try to help and assist in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a way that you are not looking for your own benefit. The problem with the U.S. is that tries to mediate always looking at an angle of what I can get out of this conflict, The U.S. needs to help mediate as a neutral party not trying to see what they can gain out of it but rather focusing on what is best for the Israelites and Palestines, they need to focus on the needs of the people that are in the conflict. We need to be objective and look at the best posible outcome for everyone involved in the conflict. The U.S. foreign policy always has an angle and bias. If we are trying to help resolve a problem we need o put the needs of the people before our own, and the heart of the conflict is not the U.S. is te people in the near east dying because te big powers are seeing what they can get out of it.
