Does backing Israel really win votes in the US?

Wednesday's international papers look at whether Rick Perry is right in betting that hardline policy on Israel will help him win a US election, if the death of Rabbani is the first move in a potential Afghan civil war, and if the economy could finally bring down Berlusconi.

The Daily Beast sets out the case that a Palestinian state will benefit Israel, while the Guardian questions whether Rick Perry is right in trying to make the issue part of his US election campaign.

The New Yorker says the death of Rabbani could be the first shot fired in an Afghan civil war.

The New York Times calls the decision of the Georgia parole board not to grant clemency to Troy Davis a serious miscarriage of justice.

And La Repubblica says the downgrading of Italy's sovereign debt could finally be the end for Berlusconi.
