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?

Hi Michelle! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! You did a lovely job maintaining compassion and consideration for the perspective of the Jewish and Palestinian peoples, not just that of the United States. To me, it seems like the Israelis would like our help, and as long as that is the case, I believe we will lose nothing precious in the act of trying. In addition, I doubt Hamas and other actors in this conflict would ever like our help in reaching a peaceful solution.
