Following the Elections, Mideast Peace Negotiations Should Resume

Writing in Algemeiner, Alab Dershowitz outlines the peace plan he puto to Netanyahu and Abbas.

My proposal to President Abbas was to have the Palestinian Authority agree to sit down and begin negotiations before any freeze began, if the Israelis would agree to begin a freeze only after the negotiations commenced in good faith.  In that way, the Israelis would get what they wanted:  negotiations beginning with no prior actions on their part.  And the Palestinians would get what they wanted:  a settlement freeze while the negotiations continued in good faith.


Americans in Israel Vote GOP

Eetta Prince-Gibson of Tablet talks to American-born Israelis about their choices for November 6.    

In 2008, only 30,000 ballots were cast by American-Israelis. Some are attributing this year’s dramatic jump to the pressing issues at stake for Israelis. But according to most observers, it’s mainly the result of intense get-out-the vote efforts made by groups such as Democrats Abroad and Republicans Abroad, which have been sponsoring town meetings, picnics, and debates throughout the country over the past nine months. The enthusiastic turnout they’ve ginned up has made some American-Israelis wonder whether they should be voting at all.
