Louis Kriesberg's Latest Editorial on Israel/Palestine and Trump

 

In Feburary, 2018, The Hill published an op-ed by Lou Kriesberg, a long-time BI participant and Professor Emeritus from Syracuse University, entitled "The danger of a one-sided strategy for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." In it, Kriesberg explains the dangers inherent in Trump's policies which strongly favor Israeli over Palestinian interests, ignore past agreements and ongling conflict resolution processes, and in so doing, risk any number of dangerous outcomes. In response, Kriesberg calls for greater public engagement to counter Trumps foreign policies and to restore a larger Congressional role in foreign affairs.
