Israel's Poisoned Anniversary

While Israel is officially celebrating the 70th anniversary of its existence, a debate is rising on the failure of former Israeli governments to come to terms with Israel's Palestinian neighbours. The blame is being put especially on the actual administration of prime minister Netanyahu who is furthermore accused of turning the eyes of the public away from his own corruption scandal to an immediate danger from Iran.

An Arabic broadcast by Al-Jazeera in Qatar two days ago reminded of King Hussein of Jordan who had become a reliable friend to Israel's former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin during their negotiations when both politicians had tried to solve the regional problems between Jews and Palestinians. This, however, ended with the assassination of Rabin in 1995, committed by an ultranational Jew with relations to the environment of Israel's secret service Mossad and who therefore succeeded to come close enough to his victim. During the lifetime of Rabin the militant confrontation between Palestinian citizens and Israeli soldiers came to a halt. I still remember some German TV report from that time where Palestinians declared that even their children had stopped throwing stones at soldiers and which had become a traditional amusement since the foundation of the Jewish state.

Now, some former chiefs of Mossad are speaking out against the long-standing failure of Israeli politicians to come to terms with the Palestinians, saying that Israel is the only nation in the world whose borders are not defined ......
