Will the Arab Spring lead to peace between Israel and its neighbours, or does it mean perpetual war? Is what we’ve been seeing really an Arab Spring, or is it in fact an Islamic Awakening? Robin Lustig, asked these questions to Jeffrey Goldberg, the man hailed as “the most influential journalist on matters relating to Israel” in a session which looked at what the Arab Spring means for Israel, for the Palestinians, and for the prospects for peace, all against the backdrop of confrontation between the West and Iran.
