The route to Palestinian liberation is one that must be plotted through the region as a whole, not the respectable drawing rooms of nice American liberals or the hallowed chambers of international law.  The old system of necrotic dictatorships, whether pro-US or nominally resistant, has been the greatest alibi of Israeli interests.  New, genuinely popular regimes, will be the best ally of the Palestinians.  It's not just that they can provide the means of military resistance, though they can certainly do that.  It's that they can change the whole regional balance of power.  If even Erdogan and Morsi, two relatively conservative Islamist figures, can weaken Israel's position so, then consider what a more radical configuration of power would mean for Palestine."
