Oren on New Palestinian Unity Government
“We’ve had disagreements over settlements, over Jerusalem — I see this as more fundamental; it’s a source of grave concern,” said Michael B. Oren, Israel’s previous ambassador in Washington.
“It delivers a blow to American credibility, and American credibility is cardinal here,” Mr. Oren added. “Because at the end of the day, if Israel is going to make concessions for peace, is going to take risks for peace, we have to rely on our alliance with the United States. There has to be deep trust.”
