With a new Fatah-Hamas unity government, “Obama will face the worst international developments the US has ever seen”, CGP-expert Alexei Voskressenski believes. His colleague Dibyesh Anand says that peace is a most abused word when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “The primary focus for Israel has been to change the situation on the ground de facto, especially through its wall and massive settlement buildings in West Bank and the marginalisation of Palestinians from East Jerusalem.” Follow the debate on what is happening in Palestine and Israel on Global Matters.
