Do Settlements Matter? An American Perspective
Article in Israel Journal of Foreign Affairs
Read more:  settlements, colonies, US policy, US foreign policy, land confiscation, settlement expansion, Barack Obama
Summary: This article in the Israel Journal of Foreign Affairs by former Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer explores the question of Israeli settlements from a US perspective. Since 1967, one of the most pervasive questions in the Arab-Israeli peace process has been whether or not Israeli settlements represent a fundamental blockage toward progress. This question is surely on the agenda of the Obama administration as it weighs its options for advancing the prospects for peace. Thus, it is timely to review this matter in some detail.
