EFRAT, ISRAEL — March 24, 2020 — With the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus in Gaza, all eyes are (strangely) on Israel. Lets explore why and if that’s well founded, or helpful. Some background is important. During the British occupation of the Land of Israel (1917-1948), Gaza was meant to become part of an Arab state per a two-state solution …

One of the most striking aspects of President Trump’s Middle East “peace plan” is the convoluted map of the future state of Palestine. It envisions a barely-contiguous state, more a series of cantons. Full of holes, it has inevitably been compared to “Swiss cheese.” How can you make a country out of patches of lands connected by bridges and tunnels, …

  JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — February 2, 2020 — When you read the Trump plan closely, you realize it is a mirror image of the Oslo Accords. Rather than Israel being required to prove its good will, the Palestinians are required to prove their commitment to peace.
