The Middle East Peace Process

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on November 22, 2010

It currently seems to consist of the Arabs and Israelis blaming the Obama Administration for a lack of progress, and the Obama Administration trying to shift the blame back to the Arabs and Israelis. Not exactly conducive for the formulation and implementation of a comprehensive peace solution.

I don’t want to be too hard on the Obama Administration; the list is long of American Presidents who have been frustrated by the nature and pace of the peace process. But it is worth remembering that people like Andrew Sullivan promised us that Barack Obama’s image and face alone would help lead to massive and positive changes in world affairs. So much for that hypothesis, at least when it comes to the search for peace in the Middle East.
