Kemp, Golan, Miller discuss possible solutions for Middle East conflicts
by Karen S. Kastner
Staff writer

    Arab-Israeli peace is so
near, yet so far away.
    Israeli activist Galia Go-
lan said during Wednes-
day’s morning lecture that
22 Middle eastern countries
hammered out a 2002 agree-
ment that is not well-known
in America. Israel looks to-
ward America, and, specifi-
cally, to Barack Obama, to
bring the plan to fruition.
    Middle east policy expert
Aaron David Miller — Go-
lan’s partner in the lecture
— said in response that
while it would be within
the realm of “possibilities”
for Obama to focus his at-
tention for a time on Arabs
and Israelis, Miller stopped
short of characterizing this
as among “probabilities.”
    In an unusually upbeat
moment during the sober
presentation, Golan asked
Miller, who had advised
six u.S. secretaries of state,
for help in convincing the
Obama administration to                                                                                                                                                                      Photo by Rachel Kilroy
