David Grossman's Sept. 20 commentary, "What's Happened to the Land of Our Dreams?," is such a breath of fresh air!
According to conventional wisdom, it is easier to criticize Israel in Israel than in the U.S. Certainly, as Grossman says, "Something . . . rare is slipping through our fingers," and the U.S. has a unique opportunity to move Israel from its position of intransigence. Imagine if U.S. aid to Israel were contingent upon Israel's compliance with United Nations resolutions--in other words, if we held Israel to the same standards as we do Iraq and all other nations of the world! Here's to a better new year indeed.
