Anyone who knows Israel and who knows Israelis know that the peace camp is not on the left and it is not gone- it is dormant and it is mainstream. All it takes to reactivate it is hope that there are partners for peace and that world is finally accepting of Isael. Turkey's turn against Israel has put the peace camp in a coma and is probably the single biggest reason why at this time, there is no hope. It is because Turkey under Erdogan rejects and rebuffs Israel at every opportunity and it shows no understanding for what Israel faces- even though Turkey faces many of the same issues. The Palestinians have forced the peace camp even deeper by denying Jewish claims to Jerusalem and by denying the Jewishness of Israel. The Jordanians, under King Abdullah rather than promote peace, promote hatred at every opportunity falsely asserting that Al Aksa is under siege by the Jews. The West is to blame too for it does not understand that Jerusalem is Israel's chiefest joy.
