Israel faces down a diplomatic crisis

Thursday, March 19, 2009

As Israel prepares to inaugurate a new right-wing government, it is facing its worst diplomatic crisis in two decades. Its actions in Gaza and its election of a right-wing government have led to an increasing sense of global isolation as many countries turn a cold shoulder to the nation. Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, joins us for a look at Israel's plans for global PR.

Israel is facing its worst diplomatic crisis in two decades. Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times,


Ethan , I have a scoop for you.

Israel is going for an ideal solution :
the United State of Israel and Palestine -USIP- a political condominium - which received the blessings of both late leaders Rabin and Arafat in 1994.
Nasser-el-Kidwa , the PLO delegate to the UN confirmed in writing (I have the
letter and also the letter of Rabin).
Also, Bill Bradley (NJ senator) very close friend with Obama - gave his blessing, too.
The whole story I wrote in my new book :PAX OBAMA to be published next week (Kotarot publ. 0528478109 -Moshe Alon)(you are welcome ,if you wish, to get a copy of the 2nd edition).
The nature of this condominium USIP is spelled out- visit:www.hopeways.org
