Israel’s occupation is brutal, but what does that make the Arab nations?

If there was unity in the Arab world and a genuine consensus to rebuild Gaza it would have been done by now. A two-state solution, at the very least, would be in place. In fact, if Arab unity hadn’t been corrupted by the West’s divide and rule strategy, the occupation of Palestine would quite possibly never have been allowed in the first place.

The solution for peace in Palestine will never be delivered by the West, nor will it be delivered by a newspaper columnist pricking the collective conscience of his fellow Israelis. Only a united Arab world with a strong and compassionate leadership can deliver a real and lasting solution. That looks as unlikely in reality as it does in print: God help the Palestinians.
