There needs to be a different international approach towards Israel-Palestine, one which begins by imposing a cost to Israel’s occupation in order to make it untenable. Negotiations cannot proceed while Israel acts with impunity.

The French should also take heed and reconsider. Reviving shopworn efforts in Paris will not help produce a different outcome.
