In the court of world opinion the Palestinians are securing the moral high ground in direct proportion to what Israel is loosing. Israel is increasing isolated at a time when it is facing its biggest threat in the form of an Iran that is not only going nuclear but which is hostile to Israel. Then there is the Arab Spring. I love Israel but I am worried. I am worried that Israel is making choices, and avoiding making others, which place it in a dangerous position. One definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Finally the Palestinians have figured that out. If Israel makes an agreement for peace with Palestine neither side will get everything they want. It has always been that way. The Iranians scare everyone in the region, and if there is a settlement Israel is safer.
