Ettinger noted that the fall of previously stable dictators in the Middle East, such as Mubarak in Egypt, has demonstrated that the stability of peace agreements cannot necessarily be guaranteed long-term.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas is 78 years old, suffers from low popularity and factional infighting, and has been ruling without a mandate since Palestinian Authority elections were indefinitely postponed in 2009 due to fears that the U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas would take over.

“As for Kerry’s initiative, and Israel’s willingness to cautiously engage in a renewed process, you have to ask policymakers why they take erroneous steps,” Ettinger said.

“This initiative runs contrary to the interests of the U.S., the peace process, and U.S.-Israel relations.”

  1. American politicians want to be the guy who creates peace at any expense for some feather in their cap. It really has little to do with Israelis or Plishtim, or anyone else.

    Golddigger gigolo Kerry should stay home and play ketchup, because he's never going to catch up.

The recent Israeli air strikes on Syria – which have neither been confirmed nor denied by Israeli officials – targeted weapons depots allegedly storing Iranian-made weapons intended for the Lebanese terrorist organization Hizbullah.
