NATO offers troops after Mideast peace deal


news.yahoo.com

HERZLIYA, Israel – NATO would offer peacekeeping services to Israelis and Palestinians if both parties request it in a peace deal, the alliance's secretary general said Wednesday

Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO would intervene if a future peace treaty was broken or if the two sides needed assistance.

This is an interesting development.

It would probably be in both sides best interests to make this request.

What I would like to know, is which NATO countries would contribute forces?

I think Israel would have no issue with US troops or UK troops. Who would the Palestinians be ok with? Turkey?
This wil be something to keep an eye on as it develops. I think if it does happen, there could be a real chance for an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

On the surface it sounds reasonable but should anything break out, such as riots, bombings or even war with Nato boots in the middle you're risking dragging those countries into the abyss and then who knows what next.

NATO has had experience with that in the Balkans and Afghanistan, so I don't think that will be a huge issue.

I actually expect some kind of operation in Gaza. Right now NATO and the EU recognize the Palestinian Authority not Hamas. At some point Gaza would have to be brought back into the PA fold.

Overall though, the conflict as a whole would be over and Israel would have a buffer to Iran. I don't think Iran would attack NATO. Israel could get rid of its nuclear weapons. It would be good for all sides.

NATO has many countries besides the US and the UK, some of them have participated or even organized talks about the Middles East problem, so I think there are several that could be accepted by both sides.

An interesting idea.
