Israel wants guaranteed funding for missile defense projects, while U.S. wants to phase out authorization for Israel to buy Israeli-made weapons and supplies with American security aid.23:11 03.05.16 | 0 comments
Are they and other factions ready to accept these terms which Fatah has accepted on behalf of the PLO, the authorized representative of the Palestinian people, a number of years ago? I'm not sure, because for them to give up the power of launching missiles onto southern Israel, a destructive addiction for some time, would be difficult. A democratic political process of a lengthy diplomatic endeavour, is very different from utilizing violent means. They can't accept the terms now with the PA and then renege with a relapse of the cease-fire months down the road. It has to be a commitment to resolve the conflict only diplomatically - however long it takes (presuming within a year or sooner). That's my take on the situation.
