On campus, we asked my fellow students to tell us why peace in Israel is important to them.
Their responses are powerful. There's pro-peace energy on campus. Many college students are like me: We know that without peace, Israel's very existence in danger.
However, what makes his case so "compelling" is its diversion from reality on almost every level. The truth is that the U.S. should take advantage of this opportunity to push Israel and the Palestinians to a peace agreement.
