Senator Brownback

Reader comment on: Jonathan Schanzer on Middle East Panel with Senator Sam Brownback, General Giora Eiland and Dr. Daniel Pipes

Submitted by Sidney Brownstein (United States), Jun 8, 2009 17:35

It was refreshing to hear a person of influence and responsibility zero in on the real issue in the Middle East, namely the lack of effort on the part of the Palestinians to set up governing mechanisms. An example should be taken from the develipment of Jewish institutions in pre-Israel Palestine; this resulted in enabling Israel to hit the ground running when it finally could be established. The absolute necessary, and perhaps even sufficient, condition for a successful Palestinian state is the development of governing institutions and economic acitivity: without these actions, there will never be either peace or a viable Palestinian state; with these actions, there is every hope there will be both.

Senator, please keep up your yeoman's work on this issue - and others that I am aware occupy you. To translate the Hebrew blessing: may you have the fortitude and strength to persevere!
