U.S. needs peace more than Israel or Palestinians – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Massive and intense involvement and unrelenting pressure – not sanctions and not gifts – but superpower-like conduct that recognizes that its interests are at risk, is what the United States needs to show now. Not a three-month freeze on settlement construction, but rather a comprehensive plan. Not a puppet show in which Hillary Clinton hosts Tzipi Livni at the expense of Ehud Barak or Benjamin Netanyahu so they get the hint, but progress on American recognition of a Palestinian state. The slogan that the United States cannot want peace more than the parties involved is simply false. The United States needs peace more than the parties involved.
