A recent article in Foreign Affairs by Brookings fellow Natan Sachs is getting a lot of attention: Why Israel waits: Anti-Solutionism as a strategy. (Full disclosure: Sachs is a friend and someone for whom I have great professional respect.)
The piece offers some valuable insights into how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and those around him
justify their approach on national security issues. However, the analysis suffers from an important omission with
respect to the Israeli government's approach to the Palestinians, and offers a policy recommendation that, if
adopted, would be disastrous.
