'There’s a unique place of pique for the Israelis in certain places in the administration' hovering over negotiations, expert tells New York Times.08:55 29.04.16 | 0 comments
The United Nations` mediator Bernadotte explained in 1948 that the partition resolution worked only as a whole. That means an economic union with two states and not a simple two state solution. His explanation was that even then the arab state was not viable on its own. Why isn't the arab state viable on its own? It has 22 surrounding countries with a common ethnic, cultural, relgious and linguistic heritage that form natural partners with it and should be able to support it as it gets started. So why isn't it viable? Maybe for the same reason that those other 22 states are miserable neo feudal failures (except where oil can be used to prop up otherwise insolvent economies)?
