Peace process dead if Binyamin Netanyahu wins Israeli election, academics warn | Paul Owen, guardian.co.uk

The Israeli-Palestinian peace process is dead if Binyamin Netanyahu wins next week’s Israeli election, leading academics have warned – even if he forms a government with centrists rather than the ultra-nationalist party Jewish Home.

The polls show Netanyahu on course to remain prime minister after the 22 January polls, with Labor the second-largest party and Naftali Bennett’s relatively new Jewish Home coming a close third.

Bennett has said the conflict with the Palestinians is “insoluble” and a Palestinian state is not going to be established, and he has called for Israel to annex the 60% of the West Bank that is under Israeli military control – the so-called Area C.
