Kerry's peace efforts a noble goal

(Continued)

Security is the main concern for Netanyahu, and while the U.S. would ensure that Israel held a quantitative edge in military capability, the best guarantee of Israel security would be peace with its neighbors.

Netanyahu also knows that Israel in the long run cannot be a true democracy when the demographics of the occupied territories will eventually make Jews a minority in their own country. Freed from the burden of being occupiers, Israelis would also see more acceptance worldwide for their people and products.

The obstacles to peace are many and powerful. But we agree with John Kerry.

It’s certainly worth a try.
