The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is at its core a clash of unbridgeable historical narratives, not just a dispute over land, territory, and security.
Later today, Donald Trump is expected to offer a largely symbolic but important gesture affirming that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
It’s going to take some heavy lifting to untether thousands of years of Jewish history from Israel. And it’s going to take a lot more competent organization than the United Nations to get it done.
Blaming Israel for creating tension in Europe is another way of blaming the victims and laying culpability where it doesn’t exist.
It’s time to stop pretending that Palestinians are ready for a state. It’s not going to happen.
