To the Editor:
No one seriously disputes that "[i]t takes two to make peace". But not just any two; it requires that each have stature. Signing a "peace" with a party who can't enforce its provisions is as futile as nailing hummus to the wall. And that which asserts and enforces a monopoly on force is a "State". So let's bend all efforts towards peace. But let's acknowledge that Palestinian statehood is a necessary condition to get there, which cannot be put off to some hazy End of Days.
