The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
If the Palestinians in Fatah believe that Obama completely supports their position about the so called "occupation" and "settlement building" then they have only themselves to blame for reading more than what was expressed. Aspirations for two states is the primary goal of the United States. Abbas wants to appease Hamas and other hardliners by raising new issues such as the recent attacks on tourists in Jerusalem, so as to shore up his weak hand. The fact is he has little negotiating ability. Whining and fussing doesn't resolve problems. Get back to the negotiating table now.
