Behind the Settlements: Israel's West Bank Settlements Now Sit on the Wrong Side of Zionist History

Summary: It was not wrong for President Obama to raise a demand for a settlements freeze, argues ambassador Dan Kurtzer in this American Standard article, even if the tactics employed to do so did not prove optimal. The issue will not go away, because Israelis themselves increasingly won’t let it. The challenge for the United States is how to pursue the issue in a persistent and intelligent manner.
