The young members of the Labor party in Israel held a meeting this past week at party headquarters.
Young leaders of Israel's veteran political movement convened to discuss currents and invited the wisdom of Binyamin Ben Eliezer, Israel's serving Infrastructures Minister. I asked him this: Where is Israel taking responsibility? The Minister explained to us where the U.S. was at fault, and where the Palestinian leadership had erred. I asked him if he would take responsibility, as a veteran of thirty years in the Israel Defense Forces who has held seven cabinet ministries. Let's just say his answer was underwhelming and helps one understand our unpromising circumstances.
It is my belief that only by authentically taking responsibility for your situation can you create a better world.
