    Obama Makes Israeli-Palestinian Peace Possible: Seize the Moment!
    By Les Canges
    Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, began the year 5770 by flying to New York and shaking hands publicly with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. There were no apples with honey. It's not time for any sweet celebration yet. [Read More]

    Israel Not As Powerful As You May Think
    By Ira Chernus
    Too many peace-and-justice activists are too quick -- even eager, it sometimes seems -- to feel powerless. Did you hear all the wailing and gnashing of teeth the other day from liberals, when the Obama administration hinted that it might give up the public option for health care? [Read More]

    Time for Jews to Abandon the Old Foundation Myth of Israel?
    By Ira Chernus
    Pundit Stanley Greenberg got it right when he said that in politics “a narrative is the key to everything.” But some issues, like the Israel-Palestine conflict, seem to resist change as they form a thicket of many narratives, tangled up so badly that progress toward a solution seems all but impossible.

    Rabbi Stephen Booth-Nadav of B’nai Havurah and the local Brit Tzedek v’Shalom chapter staunchly supports Israel’s right to defend itself.“Israel has an inherent right to stop the rockets –– but I can’t point to any example in Israel’s wars” where a prolonged incursion “has worked,” he says. “I’m sure other people can, but I can’t.” [Read More]

    Letter to the Editor: Needed: a ceasefire now
    By Mark Belkin, Les Canges, Evelyn Hutt, Nancy Jackson, Randall Kuhn, Hanna Weston, Colorado Chapter
    Who among us has not watched in alarm and anguish as the crisis  has unfolded in Gaza and southern Israel over the past two weeks? Though Israeli action is an understandable response to continued rocket fire from Hamas, and the idea of air strikes and ground war may seem compelling to those who see  no option for peace, these actions represent a huge escalation of the conflict — a crisis that may end in a wider war in which many more Palestinians and Israelis will die.
