The article discusses U.S. and United Nations (UN) involvement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, examining the declaration of a Palestinian state at the UN and arguing that the Oslo Accords must be put aside in order to develop a two-state solution. The article examines topics including support for politicians, Israeli presence in Palestinian territories, the participation of Arab countries in the peace process, relations between factors of the Palestinian national movement and Iran, and support for the state of Israel among Israeli Arabs. The author argues that Israeli and Palestinian leaders must accept that they will benefit more from compromising than from entrenching in order to achieve a peace.
