The already heated conflict got hotter last weekend when Israel attacked Palestinian sites with fighter jets, raising the specter of actual war. Arab governments were discussing breaking relations with Israel, Hezbollah threatened terrorist attacks, someone tried unsuccessfully to blow up or derail a passenger train running between Haifa and Tel Aviv, and there’s even a water crisis that may cause rationing because of three years of drought. On the positive side, the Mitchell Report, an analysis of the conflict and blueprint for solutions, suggests there may still be hope for peace talks.
