The headlines this week reeked of déjà vu, reminiscent of previous confrontations and intifadas, as conditions on the ground in Gaza are becoming more and more similar to those that preceded the 2014 war.19:05 05.02.16 | 4 comments
Let me start out b y saying I am no lover of George Bush. Annapolis, held under his presidency, however, wil be proven by history to have been an important event in the evolution of a real solution of the israeli- Palestinian problem. Cynics can say all they want about the inevitability of failure, the intransigence of Israel, the ineptnes of Palestinian leadership, the moral corruption of the surrounding Arab states, the looming threat of Iran as the underlying motivation- whatever! Bush's people displayed true leadership and wisdom in orchestrating a summit that did not set themselves up for failure by overexpectations ala Clinton, but rather they helped produce a solid momentum towards real solution......you cynics wait and see!
