Süddeutsche Zeitung - Germany | 17/03/2009

The end of reconciliation

The Süddeutsche Zeitung fears an escalation of the Middle East conflict: "Under Benjamin Netanyahu and his vassals from the right-wing and ultra-orthodox camps there will be no new political impulses but only regression and renewed hostilities. Netanyahu will manage the conflict, not solve it. He and Avigdor Lieberman are the gravediggers of the Middle East peace process. They want to maintain the occupation and establish more Jewish settlements. All of that suits the radical Islamic Hamas perfectly well. It doesn't need a peacemaker in Jerusalem, but a Netanyahu who wants to end their rule in the Gaza Strip with violence. Hamas needs Netanyahu because the confrontation with Israel legitimates its existence."
