The recent outbreak of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians may prove deadlier than any other clashes in recent years.

Read Charai’s latest in the National Interest on the risk of escalation of current clashes between Israel and Palestinians and what steps the United States administration should take to help move the region toward peace.
