Some Arab opinion leaders re-think their approach to Israel – but others cling to “anti-normalisation” Categories: Egypt, Gulf states, Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Or Avi-Guy

The events of the so-called "Arab Spring", the chaos that ensued and the wars raging in Syria and Iraq, have highlighted to the world some of the structural and deeply-embedded governance deficiencies in Arab countries, and the related problems of under-development.
