How would we incentivize Israel towards peace?
Israel is not dedicated to peace. I think that much is obvious. I have a couple of ideas but I want to know what you guys think, how would we reach a situation where Israel, the state, itself would want to reach a peace settlement with the Palestinians?
Israel gets so much aid from the United States that, if Obama were to actually put his foot down and tie some strings to the money Israel received, Israel would have to buckle down and agree to compromise. As an American citizen, I’m all for putting some pressure on U.S. politicians to take a different tune with Israel.

Let’s talk about Israel for a bit. No, not Israel-Palestine, just Israel.
Israel has a coalition government. Unlike here in the USA, which is a two-party system, a coalition government means that any group can have a party to represent their interests, and once they meet a minimum threshold, this gives the party a minimum number of seats in the legistlative branch of the government, the Knesset. Sounds great, right? More representation for all!
A solid analysis on the state of the Knesset.
