Dear Friend,

About half of the recent editorials deal with the inability of Arafat and also Sharon to negotiate a mutually realistic peace agreement, even though a majority of their people would find such an agreement acceptable. One of the op-eds, #17 by Agha and Malley, suggests an interesting imposed settlement, and another, #23, by Abunimah, suggests a joint state. Although not preferable to most people, under the current deadly impasse, these options must be seriously considered.

L'shanah tovah. Let us hope that the new year will bring us closer to a lasting peace.
