Re: Geneva

by Jonah Goldberg

Two quick things: 1) Re the fence, Andrew, fair enough. My objection is with those who say it should follow the 1967 border. Doing so would actually mean retreating and capitulating under fire on an issue that is supposed to be negotiated. To pull behind the 1967 border unilaterally and build a fence on it would not only abandon settlements to be devoured, it would be a monumental concession to terrorism.

Second, the latest issue of the The New Republic has an outstanding piece on why the Geneva Accords are completely antithetical to Israeli interests — and to America’s. Unfortunately, they don’t have a free version on their site. But if you get a chance to read it, I think most people will find it powerfully persuasive.
