For nearly a quarter century, the United States has played the contradictory role of chief mediator in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and the primary diplomatic, economic, and military supporters of the more powerful of the two parties. During this period, the United States has opposed substantive involvement by the United Nations, insisting that whether and to what extent the occupation should end could come only through the voluntary assent of the occupying power. Now, with the failure of the Trump administration and Congressional leaders to even nominally support a viable two-state solution, what options remain for Israeli-Palestinian peace?
