Dar Al Hayat – Mubarak’s Visit to the US… and the Cards of the Palestinian Cause

the rift between the Palestinians represents an obstacle to achieving peace with Israel. However, more importantly, it has become the “coat-hanger” used by all parties to hang their failure or negligence upon.

even if the US President wanted and was determined to work towards a solution to the Palestinian issue, the mechanisms of such a solution are no longer in his hands alone. Late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat used to often repeat his famous saying that “99 percent of the cards to resolving the Palestinian issue are in the hands of the United States”, yet it seems that the cards have gone with the wind and any US President no longer holds but a few remnants.
