Build bridge by making progress on two-state solution

Ilana Bet-El, in discussing the multifaceted lessons of the 1973 war in Israel, asks us to contrast “military and security assessments” with “political” ones (“Yom Kippur War’s lessons still resound,” Op-ed, Oct. 7). A more comprehensive assessment that Israelis must conduct is socioeconomic, because the real question from 1973 is how to handle the huge Palestinian Arab populations left in limbo, suffering in refugee camps or under half-formed governments.

Making progress toward a two-state solution would ease tensions on both security and political fronts.
