The recent successful achievement of a treaty with Iran offers an interesting opportunity for Israel leaders to seek attaining similar agreements with Palestinian leaders. The Iran negotiation occurred after months of non-stop interaction between the Six nations and Iran.At any moment, John Kerry and the others could have walked away in disgust at failure of Iran to back down from their ideas.Kerry was relentless, he refused to take, “no” as an answer. He was focused on the end result and did not allow verbal slights or seemingly negative behavior to result in defeat.
There is a lesson for Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues attacking Palestinian leaders for their actions. If they seek support from the UN it is a negative action according to Netanyahu. If they seek action by the International Criminal Court then they are criminals. The good news is that Palestinians are willing to accept international law. That is a welcome idea from any Islamic group within the Middle East. Bibi Netanyahu has refused to work with John Kerry and thus no accord with Palestinians!
