The four lenses of the Israel/Palestine conflict

The general silence from American Jews, despite loud cries from the right, regarding a UN vote condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank, is instructive.

Thoughtful people are often frustrated at our inability to have productive discussions about Israel/Palestine for a good reason: we view the problem through one of four different lenses.
