Surprisingly Good Articles From Both Sides Of The Debate

Ami Isseroff in Israel says that Israeli settlements are a dead end, democracy in palestine must be sought, the powers in other nations using palestine for their own ends must be marginalized (!) and the refugee situation must be solved.

Ahmad Humeid in Jordan discusses suicide bombings and how damaging they are to the national vision to achieve independence and live in a free, democratic Palestine. He also rightfully tries to correct people's expectations of a short-term solution.

Not surprisingly, both sides of the debate blame the US for not solving the problem. This is like blaming the spoon for making Rosie O'Donnell fat but at least they're not blaming each other.
