Israel facing third intifada

The unresolved Palestine issue threatens to trigger a third intifada, the Catholic daily Avvenire warns in view of the attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighbourhood: "The likelihood of a third intifada grows with each hour that passes. But do Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas still have the power to stop the wave of terror and defuse the bombs of an asymmetrical guerilla war? Can Hamas, which is politically isolated but adamant that it won't give up control in the Gaza Strip, really contribute to a peaceful solution to the conflict? ... It is the duty of the major democracies of the European community, America and our country to intervene immediately and contribute to a solution of the conflict over Palestine. Undaunted and in the knowledge that left to themselves the protagonists will never find a solution."
