After serious reflection about the current state of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, I came to the conclusion that the United States government and American-Jewish community can really not do much at present.
It seems that the Palestinian leadership is completely committed to the 2002 Arab Initiative with full support of key Arab states for the UN approach and financial aid. Only Israel and its government can decide on its strategy and future.
We American Jews will always respond when asked by Israel.
I am writing this letter to encourage a dialogue in our community on this important issue.
