Fmr. Palestinian Adviser: This Is ‘the Straw that Breaks the Camel’s Back, It’s a Bridge Too Far’

‘I think it’s going to be very, very hard, if not impossible for any Palestinian leadership to return to an American-led peace process after something like this’

EXCERPT:

ELGINDY: "Well, I think we’re likely to see protests. And it’s important to point out that the Palestinian leadership is not always in an ability to prevent these protests and they're very often directed — the anger is very often directed at them, which really speaks to the broader point here. I think it’s going to be very, very hard, if not impossible, for any Palestinian leadership to return to an American-led peace process after something like this. You know, the United States has long been operating under a very serious credibility deficit in the Arab world in general, but with Palestinians in particular. And I sort of see this as kind of the straw that breaks the camel’s back. It’s just a bridge too far."
