An excellent piece by MJ Rosenberg on Al-Jazeera analyses why the territories occupied by Israel will take their turn in the Arab Revolt. Now I always have to insert a caveat here; I defend absolutely and without reservation Israel's right to enjoy peace and security within her pre-1967 borders, but her attempt to hold onto East Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and the West Bank has always seemed suicidal to me, as well as indefensible.
The question as to how Israel will relinquish the occupied territories and withdraw back into legal Israel is one that will dominate the media in days and weeks to come; will they be like Mubarak, bow to the inevitable and go with grace? Or will they, like Gadaffi, release the powers of Hell on the unarmed Palestinians?
Time will tell.
