Three Israel-related items in the L.A. Times in recent days worth having a look.
- Times editorial writer Marjorie Miller, reporting from schools in Ramallah and Jerusalem, asks Israeli and Palestinian teens for their views on war and peace.
- In a second dispatch from the region, Miller excerpts interviews with prominent Israeli and Palestinian leaders about the way forward in the region.
- In an editorial, the Times laments Israel’s apparent "right turn," concluding: "Israel will never be truly secure without peace, and will never have peace without a negotiated agreement to end the occupation of lands captured in the 1967 war. It needs a leader who will help restore the country’s faith in peacemaking."
