    Rabbi Michael Lerner: Fairness for both sides key to Middle East peace
    President Barack Obama is reported to have said to his advisors last week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would never make the concessions necessary for a peace accord. Well, we in the peace movement say, "duhhh." If the president really...
  • The United Nations created a Jewish state; it can also create a Palestinian one

    I read with interest Rabbi Chaim Landau's comment on the possibility that the United Nations could recognize a Palestinian state in September ("Mr. Obama, don't equate Israel with its enemies," May 27). In 1948, the state of Israel was created by the...
  • U.S. should pull funds if UN recognizes Palestine

    The United Nations needs to be restrained and warned that a declaration of a Palestinian state must not come about. President Obama needs to assume some leadership role and responsibility for the first time. A declaration and the establishment of a...
  • It's going to take more than Facebook to make peace between Israel and Palestine

    The article "Social networks as a grass-roots approach to Mideast peace" ( July 18 ) misses the point when it lists the Israeli-Palestinian conflict's core issues as "...mutual recognition and respect, ideology and dignity." In fact, there are four key...

    The case against divesting from Israel

  • There's no moral equivalency between the Israeli and Palestinian 'narratives'

    James W. Dale makes a welcome point in his commentary about the divestment campaign against Israel ("Choosing to stay engaged: Anti-Israel measures like divestment are not the best way to seek justice for Palestinians," May 4). It is, as he says, vital...
  • Israeli opposition to Palestinian state is unwavering

    The Rev. James W. Dale suggests that "The harder way, I believe, is the way of continuing to demand that both sides must come to the table if there is ever to be a lasting peace with justice" ("Choosing to stay engaged," May 4). This in contrast to...
  • Shalit release: A flawed deal between sworn enemies

    Both Israel and Hamas are claiming victory in the prisoner swap that will free more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails in exchange for Sgt. First Class Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier kidnapped by militants five years ago and held...
  • Stripping UNESCO funds over Palestine is a mistake

    The U.S. sacrifices its own best interests with punitive laws that require defunding of vital U.N. groups who dare to recognize Palestine as a state ("UNESCO vote on Palestine shuts off funding from U.S.," Nov. 1). There can be no clearer example of the...
  • Hamas will never accede to peace with Israel

    The Sun editorial "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) is a triumph of wishful thinking over analysis. Its self-contradictions and omissions include: •Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "would have to exercise the kind of statesmanship that has...
  • Hope for peace between Palestinians, Israelis at highest point since '93

    JERUSALEM - It began, as it had last time and the time before, with a celebratory handshake and soaring rhetoric about a chance for peace in this ravaged land. Yesterday's landmark summit, during which Israel and the Palestinians announced they would...
