Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

The tabloid said the first daughter was “all smiles” as protesters died in Gaza.
The lack of agreement means that everyone loses. Insufficient energy has contributed to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Israel continues to face the threats from an unstable situation and criticism for its policy towards Gaza, the PNA does not have the revenue stream and BG was left with a stranded asset.
Britain must also recognise that unlike in 1917, it does not have the power to enforce its will. The future will be shaped by Israelis and Palestinians. Britain should use 'it's best endeavours' to improve the chances of the pragmatists among them who recognise that two national homes is the only way to reconcile the demands of two nations, and end a century of conflict.
Hundreds of women - Israeli and Palestinian, secular and religious, young and old - all marching in white. They marched from Metula on Israel's Lebanese border, from the Arab town of Umm al-Fahm, from Tel Aviv and from Eilat. They marched through the streets of Jerusalem; they marched to the banks of the Jordan River near the Dead Sea.
In the summer of 2014, all eyes fell on the tragic events of the 51-day war in Gaza, infamously known as Operation Protective Edge. The harrowing stories of death, loss and destruction, sparked a monumental show of solidarity across Britain, with many calling for an end to the killing of innocent children and civilians, and demanded a long lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestine conflict.
Last week, I was invited to deliver a talk in Germany at the annual Synod of the European Diocese of the Church of England. The organisers offered me ninety generous minutes to cover the whole MENA and Gulf regions.

It is impossible to predict how events will unfold - perhaps a leader with the vision and bravery of Mandela will emerge to steer us through the difficulties. Regardless, the birth of a new binary nation will see upheaval, chaos and bloodshed but it is now inevitable. Obama can can either chose to continue with the illusion of two states or start the difficult journey for a lasting settlement.
As with around 600 hundred other Palestinians, a six-month "administrative detention" order has been served on Abu Sakha by the Israeli military. With these scandalously unjust orders, no reason needs to be given and lawyers for those held have no real means of contesting the rulings which can be based on secret evidence. In Abu Sakha's case, the Israeli military have been quoted as saying the circus trainer poses a "danger ... to the security of the region". So that's supposed to be that.
