The Road to Peace

16 February 2017 23:59:48 WN.com - Mideast News

Diplomacy is often more art than science. For those who think otherwise, I would suggest that they watch the joint press conference that President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held on Wednesday. It was not carefully orchestrated. And it did not offer clear policy prescriptions or formulas. For those reasons, we should all be careful about drawing far-reaching conclusions. I offer this cautionary note particularly because so many observers have been quick to conclude that the two-state outcome to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is now dead. They take Trump's unwillingness to express a preference between a two-state and one-state outcome, and Prime Minister...

Islamic State Calls on Supporters to Target Religious Scholars

16 February 2017 23:59:45 WN.com - Mideast News

Islamic State propagandists have launched a coordinated online campaign accusing prominent Muslim clerics in the Arab world and the West of betrayal in an apparent bid to delegitimize them, especially in the eyes of younger Muslims. The terror group says the clerics are collaborating with Arab regimes and the international coalition opposed to IS and are urging supporters as a top priority to kill “the evil scholars.” Some analysts suspect the terror group is casting around looking for traitors to explain the collapse of IS’s battlefield fortunes and to shape perceptions about the reasons for the fall of the terror group’s self-styled caliphate. Others see the new campaign as linked more...

A broader Israel-Arab deal _ rare opportunity or diversion?

16 February 2017 23:59:45 WN.com - Mideast News

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -- President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have pledged to seize what they believe is an opportunity for an ambitious Israeli-Arab peace deal. The premise is that Sunni Arab countries - pushed closer to Israel and the U.S. by the fear of regional rival Iran and its nuclear ambitions - can play an active role in future negotiations, perhaps nudging the Palestinians toward a deal they might otherwise reject. A rare opening or wishful thinking? Here's a look. -- WHAT DID TRUMP AND NETANYAHU PROPOSE? At the leaders' first joint news conference on Wednesday, Netanyahu said some Arab countries see Israel "increasingly as an...
