As Netanyahu no longer talks peace, Israel is set for paralysis

On Monday – the day before his election victory - he abandoned his conciliatory words and went back to being against a Palestinian state. “Anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state, anyone who is going to evacuate territories today, is simply giving a base for attacks to the radical Islam against Israel,” he said. “This is the true reality that was created here in the last few years.”

So Mr Netanyahu has jumped from being against the two-state solution, to being in favour, to being against it once again. His current position forces him once again to bang his head against stubborn demographic reality: if there is one state west of the Jordan, it must eventually be an Arab state.

Moreover, ordinary Israelis can never forget that whenever they have relinquished territory in the past – by leaving south Lebanon in 2000, for example, or evacuating settlers from the Gaza Strip in 2005 – nothing has been gained save for barrages of rockets launched by Hizbollah and Hamas.
