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
No Pal state can be actualized apart from the US' UNSC veto. Obama's opportunity to impose upon Israel will only last for another 2 years maybe one. If the mid-term elections don't clip his wings the year long campaign for re-election will. Polls even now indicate that he'll follow his idol Jimmy Carter as a one term wonder. In these next 2 years the economy will impose upon him once again. Once the stimulus money runs out and the American people decide not to hand over more of their future, domestic affairs will become immediately more important than ME peace, let alone a state for past terrorist orgs. A raise in the price of gasoline alone could turn the majority of voters against the Arabs, if they weren't already so.
