Since Israel's 2005 withdrawal from Gaza and the 2011 Egyptian revolution,
the Sinai Peninsula has emerged as a new hotspot in the complex Arab-Israeli
conflict, with an expanding terrorist infrastructure that makes it another
front of potential confrontation. The Bedouin are now in a position to
initiate crises that neither Israel nor Egypt wants, while also influencing
the struggle against Hamas. In this Policy Note, leading Israeli commentator
Ehud Yaari outlines the steps needed to prevent the total collapse of
security in and around the peninsula, avoid the rise of an armed, runaway
Bedouin statelet, and minimize the risk of Israeli-Egyptian peace imploding
under the pressures of the wild Sinai frontier.




Ehud Yaari is an Israel-based Lafer international fellow of The Washington
Institute and a Middle East commentator for Israel's Channel Two television.
A former associate editor of Jerusalem Report, he has received numerous
awards for journalism, including the Israeli Press Editors-in-Chief Prize
for coverage of the peace process with Egypt. In addition, he has authored
eight books on the Arab-Israeli conflict and published articles in the New
York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Atlantic Monthly, and
other outlets.
