Who Needs Peace Talks When You Have the Boston Globe?

As the Palestinians seek a UN Security Council condemnation of settlement activity, a Boston Globe staff-ed thinks the US should leverage its veto power with Israel:

Obama should use the threat of a Security Council resolution on settlements to push Netanyahu to do what he has said Israel must do: preserve the democratic and Jewish character of the country by bringing into being a Palestinian state alongside Israel. To move the parties from endless haggling to a conclusive peace accord, Obama must be prepared to come forth with fair but firm US solutions for the key issues dividing the two sides.

The Globe, unfortunately, gives a pass to Mahmoud Abbas’s Do-Nothing strategy, while overlooking PaliLeaks’s biggest lesson: the PA’s failure to educate its people about living with Israel is a far bigger obstacle to peace than settlements will ever be.
