This is big news for the Palestinians living in a besieged Gaza. This also represents a monumental shift in the Egypt-Israel relations. Under Mubarak, Egyptian policy was dictated by US and Israeli demands and largely ignored what Egyptians wanted. The change in leadership in Egypt is a good thing for the Egyptians, and the Palestinians. If the Israelis feel left out in the cold then that is their punishment for not living up to the terms of its Camp David obligations that Egypt honored and Israel did not.

While reading this article, it crossed my mind that Ehud Barak comes across as a much better Israeli leader than Netanyahu. And Barak's analysis I think is spot on. Israel is isolated and I cannot wait until September because the US cannot scuttle a vote in the GA like it can in the SC and I think the momentum is on the side of the Palestinian state. Ultimately the one-state solution is the best option, but the Zionists would never accept a non-Jewish majority, which speaks volumes on the true nature of that ideology, which is frankly outdated and immoral.
