Wrestling with the West Bank Problem

By Melvin I. Urofsky

Eugene Borowitz, May 26, 1978

The author explores the complicated and difficult issue of what Israel ought to do with the West Bank and Gaza, and how American Jews ought to relate to these issues. He argues that there is good reason to be wary both of the American (Carter) Administration's efforts to use American Jews to pressure Israel to come to any peace deal it can get, and of the Israeli (Begin) Administration's plan for limited self-determination for residents of the occupied territories.
