They Agree But How
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday October 6, 2010

I've Been Thinking:

Three world leaders have said that peace between Israel and the Palestinians is essential, they said that this is an opportunity that cannot be missed.

Former President Bill Clinton was the first to voice this observation. He said that a peace deal would "undercut" terror around the world.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said that a peace deal must be reached now more than ever. Mubarak was speaking at an event marking the 37th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War.

Jordanian King Abdullah called the Israeli Prime Minister and said that not reaching an agreement could be catastrophic for the region.

All three statements were made yesterday, but this was not a pre-planned, coordinated effort. None of these comments are unique to the players.

The issue is not whether peace is a good or even if a treaty can be signed.
The issue is whether both sides have the wherewithal to follow through with the peace if it can be achieved.
