Some analysis of the Israel/Palestine situation:
‘This is the reality and it is a bleak one. Peace is no closer than at any time since 1948 because neither side is yet willing to settle for what it can actually get. Israelis don’t want a small and insecure state with a Palestinian enemy next door; Palestinians don’t want a weak microstate that fails to solve the refugee problem. There are some people on both sides who are willing to accept peace on those terms — but not enough.’
