On the margin

The Palestinian issue is just one of many on the crowded agenda of Mideast governments and nowhere near the top of their priorities.

Nearly five years have passed since a frustrated young vendor in a dusty Tunisian provincial town set himself ablaze and ignited, however improbably, the upheavals that continue to reverberate throughout the region and beyond. One result was the further marginalization of the Palestinian issue, regionally and internationally, to the great frustration of the Palestinians.

Of course, the gap between rhetorical and actual support for the Palestinian cause has always been wide. Nonetheless, the previous Palestinian intifadas did redirect Arab and international attention to the Palestinians’ struggle against Israel. So far, however, the current round of Palestinian-Israeli violence has not done so.
