Why do we blame everyone for the Palestinian deaths and injuries except for the Palestinians? The Jewish state has survived countless wars, terrorism and the continuing anger of the Western media. It will also survive the Middle East.
Assuming that the IAEA's tight supervision of Iran's nuclear facilities is successful, and that the IAEA is not impeded when checking out suspected nuclear facilities — two very big ifs — the question becomes how the United States and Israel will utilize the 15 year period before Iran is allowed to increase its enrichment (It will be allowed to start producing advanced centrifuges after 10 years) thereby drawing near to the capability of producing a nuclear weapon.
I have recently had several spirited conversations with an old friend from high school over the Israel and Hamas conflict and the larger questions surrounding Israeli settlements, the Palestinian Intifadas and a dual state solution. My friend, a self-proclaimed Zionist and American Israel Public Affairs Committee member, often lamented that Israel was misunderstood and could not figure out why more African Americans were not vocal supporters of it.
