Showdown in the Middle East
We’ll start SOS today by converting the boralogue into a Middle East update.
This September forecasts two elections which will affect the future of Israel: (1) The Palestinians are pushing for a United Nations declaration of statehood, creating a country of Palestine. If this unilateral move succeeds, Israel may be accused of occupying a member state’s territory with various types of sanctions taken against it. (2) Egypt is holding presidential and parliamentary elections where the Muslim Brotherhood may be the winner.

As the Arab spring turns into an Arab winter, countries surrounding Israel are becoming increasingly radicalized and supporting terrorist groups. This is simultaneous with the Obama administration’s efforts to coerce Israel into accepting indefensible pre-1967 borders as a basis for peace process negotiations.
