You-nilateral? I’m-a-lateral!

Nabil looks at the issue of unilateral actions by Israelis and, uh, apparently Palestinians?

The Taliban in Qatar

Goodwill is not something the Taliban have found in short supply over the festive season. Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, agreed last week to the opening of a Taliban liaison office in Qatar, a week after Joe Biden set out to make it clear that ‘the Taliban per se are not our enemy’.
