If the term “window of opportunity” is considered common diplomatic lingo, then for the Palestinian Authority, the term “window” is much exaggerated when it comes to the Bennett-Lapid government and its approach to the Palestinians.

“We consider this the first sign of a crack [in the window] of opportunity,” a senior Palestinian official in Ramallah told Haaretz this week. “If in the face of Netanyahu and the backing Trump gave him it was a lost cause, now there’s a trend of change. Not only because of Bennett and the makeup of his government, but mainly because of the new administration in Washington.”
