Just like in Egypt opposing factions segmented to save Islam; both global and Egyptian, here Jewish parties segmented to save Judaism and Jewish people. But then the results are declared and the ‘Equal Right’ would control the outcome of the future Israeli-Palestine talks and dictate terms to the peace process, while the ‘Equal Left’ would make sure that Israel does not attack Iran. Israelis are not much interested in talking to Palestinians and they as a majority don't approve the bombing of Iran because of its nuclear weapon program either.
Israel has some fear regarding its relationship with the West. The fact is that Judeo-Christianity axis is fragile and Jesus asking his disciples to evangelize Jews is most certainly a verdict against Judaism and Hebrew. But then no sensible external player would act against Israel as it is a derived Western country and the closest ally of the US in the Middle East. But with segmentation some hope can revive in the Middle East about resolving the long-standing dispute.
This trend of segmenting would continue and in future and would be most noticeable in the subcontinent’s upcoming elections: supposedly in 2103 in Pakistan and most certainly by March of 2014 in India. The most likely winners would be the Congress Party in India and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in Pakistan. The most likely losers would be the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India even though it may perform better than the previous elections and Muslim League Nawaz Sharif faction ML(N) in Pakistan; the same may be true for it as well.
Both would make mistakes should they segment and deliberately lose the elections. The segmentation in Israel could bring some cheers but the dispute resolution with Israel is far away and Iran could go to the extreme. Segmentation does not always work and most certainly it does not work in the non-Western Asian countries. But then people have defense mechanism and they copy too.
