Französische Nahost-Obsessionen

Forget unrelenting terrorism, the Hamas-Fatah split, and the consistent Palestinian refusal to recognize Israel as the national home of the Jews, a French pre-summit paper on Thursday said settlement activity is the main threat to a two state solution.

The brief document put out by the French Foreign Ministry to explain the French initiative and the one day Middle East summit to be held in Paris on Friday said the two-state solution was under increased threat, ‚particularly with regard to continued settlement activities.‘

The document did not include a word regarding Palestinian culpability for the current diplomatic logjam. It also seemed to seek to revitalize the notion, which lost much of its currency following the Arab Spring, that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was at the core of instability in the Middle East.
