It takes a special type of talent to unite Israel, the Palestinian Authority, the Saudis, Egypt and pretty much everyone except Hamas, Turkey and Qatar. The type of talent that mixes incompetence with jaw-dropping arrogance.
The talent, in other words, of the US Secretary of State, John Kerry.
The terror group's overseas benefactors are diminishing and rival groups within Gaza are seizing Jihadi market share. The new regime in Egypt is supremely unfriendly and after weeks of relentless targeting, the IDF now has Hamas in a terrible state.
The April 29 deadline for extending the talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority expired with little reaction this week as all sides, including the American mediators, seemed to be focusing on other problems.
As the deadline for an agreement on the extension of talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority neared this weekend, US Secretary of State John Kerry was in frantic talks with Mahmoud Abbas in Amman, Jordan on Wednesday.
A few weeks ago, the two sides were awaiting an agreement which would contain the foundations for a future peace deal.
Is Israel facing a debilitating wave of economic boycotts or is the sudden rise in reports on financial organisations planning to divest and threats of impending catastrophe just a storm in a teacup that will blow over the moment the media finds something else to interest it? It depends very much who you ask.
