Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman posits “Two Sentences That Could Change The World” (Opinion, March 21) if they were to be uttered by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani respectively.
Let me propose two other sentences that, if pronounced by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, could change — if not the world — then at least the course of Jewish history: First, “Israel accepts the 1967 border, with mutually agreed territorial exchanges, as the basis for the border between the States of Israel and Palestine.”
Second, “Israel will immediately cease building new housing for settlers across the Green Line until an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement is concluded.” To echo Mr. Foxman, that “would do more to build trust than volumes of words and speeches.”
