The always mysterious “B” of Not Another Israel Blog discusses positive developments since Arafat’s demise.
-Egypt releases Israeli Druze Azzam Azzam, after 8 years in prison
-Israel-Egypt ties are improving
-Hamas is openly discussing a hudna (ceasefire)
-No major terror attacks (knock on wood)
-Reports Syria willing to enter into peace talks
-Tel Aviv Stock Market soars (Maybe my Teva shares will return to the price I paid for them.)
Would any of this happened if Yasser was still alive in his Muqata compound in Ramallah? I don’t think so.
Ah, but has “B” had a good date since Arafat’s death? That is the question on everyone’s mind.
