The United States has kept its distance from the Israeli-Palestinian struggle for so long that Tuesday’s big news from the region was as much about the deal maker, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, as it was the deal — to allow Palestinians in Gaza more freedom of movement and trade. What actions follow the accord will be crucial, but it’s good to see the Bush administration fully engaged in the process. And the closer the Israelis and Palestinians can move toward peaceful co-existence, the less likely their differences will fuel trouble elsewhere in the region.
