One Response to Israel 60 Years Later

  1. Michael Rosenberg March 11, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    In this article, you say that Israel would hold onto the Western Wall in a peace deal. In a recent article for the Huffington Post, you said that the Palestinians should get “all of East Jerusalem”. Abbas also recently said that the Palestinians must have sovereignty over the Western Wall in a peace deal. Why have you changed your view on this? Why do you think that 19 years are more important than 2000 for determining sovereignty over the Western Wall?
