Using the Geneva Accord as a springboard for a discussion of the issues surrounding the supposedly unsolvable problem of Isreali-Palestinian peace, one of America's most respected Jewish peace activists, Michael Lerner, looks at the arguments against the Accord from both the Israeli right and the Palestinian left. He examines Ariel Sharon's security wall, the calls for a one-state solution, and proposals to boycott Israeli goods. Ultimately, Lerner offers a set of strategic directions, appealing to both Jews and non-Jews, to change American foreign policy.
