If he wants to make progress in the Middle East, President Obama should use his State of the Union address to address some of the problems standing in the way of peace. This is what we think he should say: “Two years in office has persuaded me that in our pursuit of Arab-Israeli peace, we have sometimes neglected key problems. I am calling upon the Palestinian Authority to accept Israel as a Jewish state. It is not possible to achieve peace between Arabs and Jews if one side does not accept the rights and identity of the other side. No longer can we accept that Palestinians are taught to reject Israel and to glorify violence.
