The Strategist: Prospects for Israeli–Palestinian peace more remote than ever

Palestinian / Israeli flag - Israeli–Palestinian relations + peace process

To remember

  • Israel + Palestinian Authority > confronting internal challenges => cast shadows over their futures, + fast-rising tensions between the two sides = approaching a breaking point.
  • Benjamin Netanyahu + extreme ultra-Orthodox + right-wing parties = determined to change very nature of Israel’s constitutional order.
  • politicise judiciary + strip it of its most important powers
  • threatening to eliminate any remaining possibility of achieving a sustainable two-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian question.
  • Isaac Herzog warned > risk of civil war cannot be dismissed.
  • Israeli–Palestinian conflict challenged by fundamentalist forces
  • entering season of Ramadan (March 22 – April 20) + Passover (April 5–13) +> passions bound to rise even further.
  • this year > at least 100 people already killed in various West Bank clashes so far, + civilians on both sides fallen victim to terrorist attacks.

Levant's Agora

By Carl Bildt.

A massive double crisis is emerging between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean. Both Israel and the Palestinian Authority are confronting internal challenges that have cast shadows over their futures, and fast-rising tensions between the two sides are approaching a breaking point.
