Talks on new American and Israeli plans and initiatives to push forward the peace process have increased in the past few weeks, while the Palestinians are working in full swing for the establishment of an independent state in September.

The Middle East peace process has been stalled, since the Palestinians had suspended the direct peace talks with Israel in October, one month after it was launched in Washington. The talks with Israel were suspended after Israel refused to freeze settlement building in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

Since then, the American and European efforts to bridge the gaps between the two conflicting parties had failed. The Palestinians insist that Israel must freeze settlement first before getting back to the negotiation table, otherwise, they would use diplomatic options in case the peace process pronounced dead.

However, observers believe that the recent popular protests, which rip through the Arab region and toppled two Arab presidents, would put pressure on the Israelis and the Palestinians and would create a new push for the international efforts to revive the peace process.
