Reply To: What were some of your primary takeaways after reading Matti Friedman’s “There Is No ‘Israeli-Palestinian Conflict’”?

James Diddams

Hi Isaiah,

I appreciate you pointing out how Friedman criticizes the Palestinian vs Israeli framing of the conflict when there are in fact many, many more parties involved. I think that this article was written before the Abraham Accords were publicly signed, and so that probably explains why the author did not make a bigger deal of the reasons why Sunni Arab nations like Saudi Arabia have become much more interested in recent years with allying with Israel against their real shared enemy, Iran.
