Israel missing historical opportunity

The Arab Spring has long since come to Palestine, but instead of reacting appropriately Israel is missing a historic opportunity, the liberal Tages-Anzeiger writes: "Israel can try to gain the upper hand again. It can bomb the people with even greater radicality and boycott all negotiated solutions with its settlement policy. The Palestine problem is growing ever more ideologically charged with the Arab Spring. Not pan-Arab, but Islamic, and Israel is increasingly playing the role of the useful enemy. A powerful front has yet to emerge from this, but it is only a matter of time. Then Israel will be left facing the bloc that accompanied it since its founding and which collapsed with the Camp David Accords. The vicious circle could start all over again if the involved parties miss this historic opportunity."
