When asked recently what issue keeps him awake at night, new security service chief replied that it’s the possibility of Hamas carrying out a large-scale surprise attack. It’s now his job to keep that from happening.06:46 12.02.16 | 0 comments
It was understood that the American administration would suggest what the successful criteria for a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians would based on some specifics on the core issues. By doing so, the Americans would be fulfilling their obligation and both leaders, President Abbas and PM Netanyahu, would then have to consolidate their coalition peacemaking partners, to support such an agreement which their respective populations would vote upon its acceptance or not within a referendum. That was my understanding for progress to date. In essence, the leaderships represent the political stance on behalf of their mutual populations' vote on the framework agreement, and not solely their parliamentary political representatives. It's a peace agreement with terms which affect the entire populations and not the bigwigs in Diaspora - without mentioning any names!
