Israel-Palestine Deal “Not Possible”

Israel-Palestine Deal “Not Possible”

In the Jerusalem Post, Aaron David Miller argues that “an [Israeli-Palestinian] agreement now or perhaps for the foreseeable future that resolves conclusively the four core issues (borders, Jerusalem, refugees and security)” is not possible.  He notes that it is nice knowing what a final solution will look like, but that’s not nearly enough to overcome vertiginous levels of political dysfunction on both sides. 


Miller advises Barack Obama to simply manage the Palestinian issue, and “go all-out for an Israeli-Syrian agreement,” which he believes is doable and important to improving America’s regional standing.
