Algemeiner Editor-in-Chief: With Bahrain Summit, US ‘Trying Something Different’ in Israeli-Palestinian Peacemaking
With the upcoming economic workshop in Bahrain, the US is experimenting with a fresh approach to Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking, which may or may nor bear fruit, the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said during an appearance this week on i24 News.
“The Trump administration and Jared Kushner keep stressing, ‘If we’re going to fail at this, we’re not going to fail at it doing the same stuff that everybody’s been doing for however many years,’” Dovid Efune said. “They’re trying something different. And the pundits-that-be keep looking back to the old paradigms that existed beforehand.”
“At the end of the day, that’s one of the things that’s different here,” Efune continued. “They’re trying to create a discussion which is outside the political framework. They’re trying to create a people-to-people dynamic, they’re trying to create a business-to-business dynamic…to try and foster what they call a bottom-up peace.”
He added, “It’s new. Is it going to succeed? Who knows? But the fact that they are trying something different, good luck to them.”
