Palestinian cause faces difficulties amid Arab upheaval


08:02, September 25, 2012

GAZA, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian observers and analysts believe the ongoing upheaval in the Arab World have negatively influenced the Palestinian cause, making the chances of resolving Palestinian conflicts with Israel "slim."

The widespread unrest changed the political map of the Middle East, particularly when the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood movement became the ruling power in many countries, including Egypt.

In the past, the Palestinian cause featured numerous contacts between Israel and Arab countries, such as Egypt and Jordan in coordination with the United States. Nowadays, however, such efforts substantially decline.

According to some analysts, the only "winner" out of regional changes is Israel, but the Palestinians' bid for UN membership outrages both Israel and the United States and may stir the standing water.

Insisting on freezing all the Israeli settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, West Bank and east Jerusalem before resuming peace talks with Israel has become meaningless, therefore the Palestinians should thoroughly think about other alternatives.
