Zero Sum Game?

ZERO SUM GAME?….Does being pro-Israel mean that you also have to be anti-Palestinian? That’s an interesting framing of the question, and when you put it that way the answer is pretty obviously no. So why, then, does the Bush administration insist on doing nothing for Palestinians?

Walter Russell Mead poses this question in the New York Times today and suggests that this posture is buying us unnecessary trouble. Dan Drezner and Greg Djerejian seem to agree.
