    Thoughts From a ZOA Elite 

    Rob Eshman contends that a peace agreement with the Palestinians would bring huge benefits for Israel. Unfortunately, his argument does not stack up (“The Bright Side,” March 7).

    Darfur Crisis

    Thank you for your coverage of the peace deal between the Sudanese government and the people of southern Sudan ("The Graves of Sudan," Nov. 26). It is a relief to finally see a possible end to Africa's longest-running civil war.

    He closed the cap on my gas tank, returned the nozzle and handed me a slip of paper.

    Signing a framework for a peace agreement with the Palestinians by the end of May will help Israel to reshape the strategic equation in the Middle East, according to Israel's deputy defense minister, Ephraim Sneh, who briefed 250 delegates and guests at the recent Labor Zionist...
