Netanyahu: Capitulation is in Israel's best interests

Addressing the Knesset, Netanyahu said that lifting the blockade of Gaza serves Israeli interests because it will allow the army to focus on weapons shipments.

Oh really? Why then did the government lift the blockade only in response to pressure from Obama?

As we predicted immediately after it happened, the Marmara debacle led to the lifting of the blockade. This government of commandos-turned-political-dwarfs has capitulated on Iran, Jerusalem, and now Gaza.

But there is a nice twist to the lifting of the Gaza blockade: it will immensely strengthen Hamas politically. Abbas hardly got a few roadblocks removed through negotiation with Israel, while Hamas fought successfully for open borders. Israeli concessions might lead to Fatah’s downfall in the next Palestinian elections, and the peace process will be stalled for another decade.
