The Palestinian Peace initiative
It's a region where you can't talk peace without bringing in the need for more war. The $190 million in new aid for Palestine, maybe less about restarting the Middle East peace process than about boosting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas vis a vis Hamas. But money alone will not be enough. Israel for example, has taken at least 178 Fatah gunmen off the most wanted list, thus making them available for use against Hamas. Moshe Feiglin, who is running for the head of the Likud party against Benjamin Netanyahu, says letting the Fatah killers walk is an abomination, in a letter distributed to bloggers (one of which I got).
