When is the right time for recognition?
Who decides when it is time?
Can other people sense that something is wrong?
Of course the 'Arab-Israeli' is not straightforward but I can imagine historians writing about how the USA's foreign policy contributed to a very slow 'peace process'.
What do you think Labbers? Have I missed something?
