Middle East Zombies — Syria: Zombie vs Frankenstein / Israel Gaza: “Oslo zombie”

November 17, 2012

“…the beleaguered Syrian opposition has two umbrella groups vying for funds and recognition.”

One is a newly formed coalition recently announced in France and the other is the former discredited group still dragging on. So the article in Foreign Policy by Malik Al-Abdeh is entitled “Zombie Versus Frankenstein“.

But neither monster word appears in the text of Al-Abdeh’s article so this title is probably creditable to an editor at Foreign Policy (?).

Meanwhile in Al Jazeera an opinion article by UC Irvine Professor Mark LeVine “The end of the two-state illusion: Gaza’s silver lining?“:

The root cause of this deadly dynamic and its perpetual motion is simple: the two-state illusion. Everything we see today in Israel/Palestine is a result of the inability to put the Oslo zombie out of its misery. .
