Beating a Dead Horse
BitterLemons-International.org — Middle East Roundtable

Commentary by: Chuck Freilich, International Security Program senior fellow
Topic: Middle East
“How long can you beat a dead horse? The peace process died some years ago and the only humane thing to do may be to allow it to rest in peace. Indeed, it is questionable whether this is an opportune time to consider revival, when the future of peace with Egypt and Jordan hangs in doubt, Palestinian elections portend a possible Hamas takeover in the West Bank, and Hamas’ radical mini-state in Gaza is the embodiment of every Israeli nightmare.”
Freilich was also interviewed by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in “What’s going on between Iran and Israel,” on February 19, 2012.
