Business outlook: Israel. (2011). Country Monitor, 19(22), 9-9. Retrieved from
The resounding theme in this article is the uncertainty of the political outlook of Israel. The author attributes this to the dependence of the prime minister’s coalition on the support of many small parties having different and conflicting agendas. The article highlights the growth of Israel’s Real GDP 4.7% to 6.8% in 2010 and 2011 respectively and how the growth momentum could be hindered by the challenging political circumstances due to the nature of politics in Israel. This article is helpful to my research because it penetrates into Israel politics, highlighting fragmentation of coalition into parties and how this affects governmental control.

The leaders highlight that it is unavoidable for Palestinians to work with Israelis given that Palestinians import Israeli goods of about $3 billion and exports goods to Israel of about $400 million annually. The IPCC has been working hard to create opportunities for increased cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli business people, and therefore, the Israeli leaders believe these claims of economic independency has originated from Palestinian political aspirants.
