Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, president of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, says Israeli needs to stop examining the Palestinians’ readiness to come to the negotiating table and take a long hard look at their own readiness. Hartman mentions three areas in which Israelis need to change their rhetoric and actions in order to see if they have a partner for peace or if they are even ready for peace; values, language, and policy. He writes “I don’t know if we have a peace partner. I do know that the possibility of renewed negotiations should be the source of at the very least great interest on our part. We don’t need to teach the Palestinians their responsibilities. We need to make sure that we are living up to ours.”.
