Should the US be doing less?

mitchell-plitnick.jpgRegarding the Israel/Palestine conflict, former American diplomat Aaron Miller wrote "Washington isn’t responsible for the impasse…The primary responsibility for fixing the problem lies with Israelis and Palestinians, and the lack of resolution is a direct result of their lack of leadership and ownership.”

Mitchell Plitnick's assessment? "Unequivocal nonsense!" Click HERE for Plitnick's post on LobeLog.

In his second post on the TIPP Blog, Jack Berriault, TIPP's founder, presents his thoughts on a new approach to the context and subject of TIPP's work in the world: the relationship between the Palestinian Arabs and Jewish Israelis.

This approach, based on the power of "story", is the touchstone of TIPP's book A Common Historical Narrative, about to be published, and a program of workshops, now under development, that will generate the possibility of a transformed future for Palestine and Israel.

Jack Berriault on Uri Avnery: "The Israeli Salvation Front"

In his first post on the TIPP Blog, Jack Berriault, TIPP's founder, introduces an important new article by Uri Avnery, "The Israeli Salvation Front"
