To the Editor:
     Sometime around the end of the first century c.e, Rabbi Tarfon
said: "It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither
are you free to absolve yourself from it" His words are as apt today
as they were then.  For too long, Israeli governments have been
content to cling to power by blaming Palestinians for intransigence.
The status quo is unsustainable and unacceptable.Those who claim to be
political "leaders" must not be content with finger-pointing and
