Baby Steps On Israel And Palestine

Michael Singh asks the president to think small:

To move forward, the U.S. should urge Netanyahu to flesh out his plans for "economic peace" with the Palestinians. It is likely that the resulting plan of action would find wide support among both Israelis and Palestinians, and provide an atmosphere in which the current unproductive confrontation over "natural growth" could give way to a narrower agreement restricting settlement activity, and perhaps even a resumption of peace talks.
