Of course, there is no "revolution" going on in Israel now. The events in Israel that Burston mentions, such as the Sheikh Jarrah weekly demonstrations, have been going on a long time before Arab regimes in the ME started falling. It is a discredit to the newly released Arab democratic spirit to associate their brave revolution with Burston's "Israeli revolution" because it would then appear that the Arabs were inspired by the Israeli "revolution", which is a silly proposition. Mr. Burston, don't rob the Arab of their well-deserved dignity. By making his false association, Bradley does not focus on the real question: How would the Arab revolution affect the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? My view is that the respect the Arabs are now gaining in the international arena will make it harder for the Yahoos on the Israeli Right to keep denying the Palestinians their right to self-determination as a people. We will get a foretaste of this in a UN General Assembly to recognize a Palestine in the 1967 borders. The Democratic world will be more fully on their side in the vote (while now, EU countries refrain from supporting a Palestine without negotiating with Israel). We will see how long US objections will last in the face of such growing support.
