Israelis and Palestinians Going Back at the Negotiating Table

The Israelis and Palestinians are going back at the negotiating table and another 72 hour cease fire starts tonight.  This is good news.  Any break in the fighting is good news.

However nothing will change until the rights of the Palestinians are taken seriously and respected.  For some it might be a hard fact to swallow, but if Israel and its supporters are serious about peace, that is an absolutely necessary first step.  The United States can — and should — demand this of our beneficiary Israel.

End the Jewish settlements, lift the blockades, and respect the basic rights of the Palestinian people to live and work freely.
