The Middle East: no simple answers for Palestine

Answers are simple; sharing is not

I am writing in response to David Brumer’s guest commentary “No simple answers” [Opinion, guest commentary, April 24].

There are actually several simple answers:

Number one: End the occupation.

Number two: Stop building new settlements where Palestinian homes and orchards stand.

Number three: Go back to the 1967 borders.

So there are simple answers. It’s just that most Israelis do not want to share Palestinian land with the Palestinians. We know they want it all as we watch them take it, acre by acre by acre.
