Israeli Intelligence Says Failure of Peace Process Harming Israel’s Relations with Turkey and Egypt


It’s no secret that the inability to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict harms U.S. and Israeli interests in the region and that a viable, fair peace agreement would help ensure Israel’s long term security. Despite this, neoconservatives, Christian Zionists and some Jewish organizations roundly denounce this view, known formerly as linkage, because it helps them rationalize their continual rejection of the peace process. Unfortunately for those individuals who deny linkage, Israeli intelligence just took the wind out of their sails:

According to an intelligence evaluation Haaretz published yesterday about the link between the freeze in the peace process and the rupture in relations with Turkey and the violent incident at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, he [Netanyahu] should be missing [Oslo] it already.

The article referencing Oslo because Benjamin Netanyahu has stakes his political career on destroying the Oslo Accords. Now with the Arab Spring knocking on Israel (and Palestine’s) door, Bibi may long for the good old days of Oslo.
