As an ardent liberal Zionist, I thank Karl Vick for his sensitive treatment of Abbas' efforts on behalf of a Palestinian State in "The Stateless Statesman" [Oct. 15]. Too many on every side dismiss and marginalize passionate moderates who could shift the fate of an intense part of the world and lead its transformation into a safer home for all. Time is running out for other Palestinians to accept, as Abbas has, a prescription for peace that begins with recognition of Israel's right to exist and could lead to both Palestine and peace.
