Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
It seems to me that Obama is not at the moment pushing the peace process as it is a bridge too far. Instead he is pushing for a complete settlement freeze. That is doable, if at all, right now. That’s why the crunch is on. If he succeeds, the Arab world will consider it a great victory. It doesn’t care about peace and a Palestinian state. It just wants to stop Israel in its tracts. That will win over a lot of friends in the Arab world. But it won’t bring peace.
