ABSTRACT
This article presents an argument in favor of the peace process in the Middle East. Israel's dispute with the Palestinians is fundamentally concerned with land ownership. The Bible and secular history make it clear that the land belongs to the Jews, who have maintained a continuous presence there for over 3,000 years. The United States should continue to support Israel in its self-defense against the Palestinian ?intifada," or uprising, because the Jews are entitled to a homeland, and because Israel serves as a bastion of democracy in the Middle East. At the same time, the U.S. should encourage Israel to improve living conditions among its Palestinian inhabitants. The U.S. should remain committed to the Middle East peace process, but recognize that not all sides are equally committed to peace.
