I am an American Jew. I regularly attend synagogue. I speak Hebrew. I've been to Israel several times. And I care deeply about the future of not only my country, but also that of the State of Israel. And that's why I'm asking centrist and left-wing Israelis to unite.
I eventually came to like Yasser Arafat. In all my meetings with him, he never failed to listen, to give his own opinions without being strident or aggressive about them, to be polite, charming, even gracious.

Israel would not have found itself seriously deliberating to undertake a preventive military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities without U.S. approval had the Obama administration acted more resolutely much earlier.
