Rick Richman: How Not to Conduct a Peace Process
It is no surprise that a process that demands continual concessions from one side, with no consequences for the other ... has not produced peace."
I am reminded on the one hand of Bibi Netanyahu's observation that even "the establishment of a formal peace treaty does not guarantee that the peace will last" (e.g., Israel's peace treaty with pre-Morsi Egypt) -- and on the other hand, Herzl:
"If we could only be left in peace.
But I think we shall not be left in peace."
Herzl's been right about that -- so far, anyway. One hundred and seventeen years to be exact.
