This document, developed by representatives of the Israeli and Palestinian peoples and incorporating the key elements and points of agreement from the Oslo Accords and Camp David Summit, is the only present legitimate instrument seeking a resolution to the dispute between Israel and Palestine. Better than a road map without a destination, it is the inevitable outcome, more or less, of all reasonable negotiation.
Using the Geneva Accord as a springboard for a discussion of the issues surrounding the supposedly unsolvable problem of Isreali-Palestinian peace, one of America's most respected Jewish peace activists, Michael Lerner, looks at the arguments against the Accord from both the Israeli right and the Palestinian left. He examines Ariel Sharon's security wall, the calls for a one-state solution, and proposals to boycott Israeli goods. Ultimately, Lerner offers a set of strategic directions, appealing to both Jews and non-Jews, to change American foreign policy.
