Editorial: Bush should lean on Israel

This oped piece in the Star Tribune today pretty much nails it:

But the greatest opportunity lies not in changing the behavior of potential foes but forcefully nudging friends, namely Israel, to do what needs to be done — and that’s to restart a constructive process that will bring peace to Jewish and Palestinian states. No single event would better protect American shores from terrorist threats in the long run.

I’m convinced that the large majority of our problems in the middle east stem from our support of Israel and it’s actions (through our failure to criticize Israel for anything it does). If we can force Israel and Palestine to establish a sustainable peace, it would go a long way towards stability in the world.
