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.03:48 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Oslo promised independence in 5 years. It has been almost 14 years since. If this can make Abbas happy, I will make the promise, and throw in a trip to the moon. The time allotted to negotiations over the final border and core issues in the Roadmap was TWO years. And this, AFTER phase 1 and 2 (establishment of a Palestinian state without final borders) were complete. Who would expect doing it in 6 months? They have already been arguing over the little Annapolis declaration for months, so how would solutions to everything be found in 6 months? P.S. There were 6 direct talks between Olmert and Abbas, were supposedly all the principles of Annapolis were agreed to. What happened to those agreements? Was Olmert deluding himself, or just us?
