The Obama Administration Should Help Restart the Stalled Peace Talk between Israel and Palestine
I think the Obama administration must really restart the peace talk between Israel and Palestine. I believe the Middle East is the number one priority-concern of the Obama administration when it comes to foreign policy. The Middle East is a strategic part of the global economy because of its very rich oil reserves. The said region is a vital workplace for migrant workers from all over the world. The region provides huge market for various multinational companies. There are plenty of business opportunities in the Middle East. A stable Middle East region would mean a much more prosperous global economy. One of the major issues in the Middle East today is Palestinian sovereignty and independence.
If Israel and Palestine can finalize their peace agreement, then such would mean that a harmonious relationship between Israelis and Palestinians would be realized. Such would also mean that the Palestinians can now build their own country and have their own sovereignty and independence. A harmonious relationship between Israelis and Palestinians may also pave the way for Israel to have a lasting peace with all of its neighbors in the Middle East region.
If the conflict between Israel and Palestine has been resolved through a finalized peace agreement, then all the other major issues in the Middle East today, like the issue of Iran wanting to have nuclear weapons and the demands for democratization in various countries in the said region, can be resolved as well with the help of the international community. That's why I think the Obama administration should really make it a point to restart the stalled peace talk between Israel and Palestine.
