Palestinian Unity and the New Middle East

Baroud, Ramzy
May 2011
Catholic New Times;5/9/2011, p20
The author discusses how a Palestinian unity would pave the way for a paradigm shift in Middle East politics. He asserts that Israel politically benefited from a divided Arab world. With the democratic uprising in Egypt, the author contends that a new dimension in the Israeli-Arab conflict has emerged. He further argues that Egypt and Turkey's drive for political unity will place Israel in the defensive and the U.S. in crisis management.
