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?

The U.S. should mediate negotiations given its significant military, political, and diplomatic influence. It should leverage this to resolve conflicts, especially considering the global bias against Israel. While the U.S. is not entirely neutral, its support for Israel’s right to exist and defend itself balances unfair diplomatic efforts. However, the U.S. must remember that Israel is not its puppet and has its own autonomy. Understanding this is crucial for effective conflict resolution.

As a champion of freedom and Israel’s closest ally, the U.S. should consider mediating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Though a simple solution is unlikely, the U.S. should support nations with shared values, including Israel, which holds spiritual significance for us. God promises blessings to those who support Abraham’s descendants, so protecting Israel is key to our prosperity. Few nations have the resources and values to support Israel and promote a two-state solution. Inaction would only allow the conflict to worsen.
