NY Times letter 2003 May 22: A Viable Mideast Peace

A Viable Mideast Peace

To the Editor:

Re ''Breaking the Mideast Deadlock'' (editorial, May 21):

Israel has lifted Palestinian restrictions many times and has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to do so.

But this always results in the killing of Israeli civilians, a dozen in the last week alone.

As an American living in Israel, I think that it would be negligent for the Israeli government to open the borders again until there is evidence from the Palestinians that such a move won't lead to the death of Israeli citizens.

Jerusalem, May 21, 2003
