    General stability and security for all - that´s one topic. Another issue: Fatah has surrendered - they used to demand control of the border crossing, but something has changed (again). And if Egypt, possibly together with Iran, acts in a way that promotes the regime of Hamas in Gaza, then this has an impact on Israel, and on the PA, and on the peacework. And if Hamas restarts a campaign of rockets against civilians in Israel, then we will respond, and then both Cairo and Teheran will fell that they have to say and/or do something about it. Etc. Finally: I wish that the gazans might travel as they wish, and it would be interesting to check the statistics - how many are going and coming back, how many are moving to another country etc. And what about islamists moving to Gaza? Time will tell.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
