A Better Way Forward in the Middle East

Excellent essay in the WaPo by Yousef Munayyer, a political analyst for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. He makes a crucial, much too forgotten point about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:

Most Palestinians owe their tragedies to the very genesis of Israel.

Even if their life depended on it, most Americans couldn't tell you a thing about how Israel came to be, except perhaps to talk about the Holocaust and how the Jews of Europe needed a safe place to live.
