    If you listen to some prominent liberal critics of Israel, you might think that liberalism in Israel is in a deep coma. For many years now, these critics have been single-mindedly obsessed with one liberal cause: Israel’s failure to make peace with the Palestinians.

    It’s a great...

  • Beinart’s boycott plan deals a blow to peace bid

    March 22, 2012 | 3:31 pm

    Far from charting a path toward peace for Israelis and Palestinians, Peter Beinart’s advice, “boycott the settlements to save Israel,” would make peace far less likely.

    Beinart’s boycott plan assumes that Jewish settlement on the West Bank is what is holding up a deal for a...
