British foreign secretary warns about Peace Process

In an interview with BBC News, British foreign secretary William Hague warns that developments in Egypt and Tunisia could disrupt the Peace Process between Israel and Palestine.  He is not blaming the protesters for disrupting the process, but rather the shift in international focus that the protests have caused, the statements that Israel has issued on the matter, the lack of United States leadership at present, and anxiety over changes that the protests could lead to throughout the region.  An excerpt:

[Hague] added that without action now, “within a few years, peace may become impossible”.

He re-iterated his feelings in a message on the micro-blogging website Twitter, saying: “Time for bold leadership on Middle East Peace Process from the US & equally bold steps by Israelis and Palestinians”.

BBC diplomatic correspondent James Robbins said Mr Hague’s blunt language was a reflection of his frustration at Israel’s refusal to compromise on settlement building in and around Jerusalem, and the Obama administration’s failure to set a clear timetable for negotiations.
