Moment Magazine;Sep/Oct2009, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p14
In this article the author discusses the complexity of the peace process intended to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Middle East. He comments on the conduct of the peace processors as people who believe that coexistence is the natural state of affairs, and that conflict is abnormal. He mentions the need for Israel to impose stringent security conditions upon the Palestinian government in response to the repudiation of the Palestinians to Israel's legitimacy.
