Displaced Syrians are being helped on the Syrian side of border, senior Turkish official says, adds that 70,000 more could arrive if Russian and Syrian strikes continue.15:20 06.02.16 | 0 comments
Right-wing ideology has the upper hand in the Israeli government, so it can be expected that there will be no peace process in the coming months. In addition, in September there will come the end of the 10-months construction freeze in the West Bank, which the ideologues said will not be renewed. One should take it for granted that Labor will quit the government under this stalemate, leaving Netanyahu with 61 Knesset votes, not enough to function effectively. In the meantime, the US will demonstrate its unhappiness. The first real opportunity will be when the UNSC sends the Goldstone Report to the Hague with no US veto. I imagine there will also be questions raised about the $3 billion annual support. With such debacles, there will be calls for new elections. If Livni does not rush in to save Netanyahu (and why should she?) we may have new Israeli elections in 2011. Probably the end of Netanyahu politically.
