  • Netanyahu's right -- Israel has no partner for peace

    To the editor: Forget about the hubris The Times displays in telling Israel what is good for its own self-interest. The Times is also wrong in stating that it's better to acknowledge difficulties in negotiating with the Palestinians as opposed to...
