In a Dec. 25, 2012, interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, founding director Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian discussed the implications of an Israeli attack on Iran, the ongoing conflict in Syria, and recommendations he and a Baker Institute team are developing to advance Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
"Time is not working in Israel's favor," Djerejian said. "Due to economic and military superiority, [Israel can, for the time being] keep the status quo, but in the long term, I believe that if the Palestinian problem is not solved, this will constitute an existential threat to the concept of a Jewish democratic state."
