By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Imagine my surprise when I read this official comment by Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the State Department.
Psaki said that --- "If you look at the issue of a Jewish state and whether Israel will be called a Jewish state, that's been our position, as you know, for a long time, but that doesn't reflect what the parties will agree to ... and of course there are many issues like that that are being discussed as part of the framework."
This comment means that the US is not committed to the Israel's demand that the Palestinians accept Israel
as a Jewish State.
This statement assumes that the Jewish State issue is still up for discussion. That means that US Secretary of State Kerry realizes that Palestinian President Abbas will not budge on this issue.
And that in turn means that Israel must be forced to compromise.
