The political tsunami - that could wash away Netanyahu

In Monday's international papers we take a good look at the issues facing Israel as Tukish prime minister Erdogan visits Egypt to try and build a common cause - alongside gay rights campaigns in Iran, and the commercialisation of one of the world's most famous Buddhist temples.


The Guardian says israel must adapt to a radically changed Middle Eastern reality - or risk becoming a footnote in global politics.

Haaretz argues that if Netanyahu doesn't change tack, it will be his government that falls victim to this political crisis - but the Jerusalem Post says Egypt is using Israel as a scapegoat.

Back in the Guardian, we take a look at gay rights activists in Iran - outing themselves on  Facebook.

And the Independent looks at the growing commercialisation of the famous Shaolin Temple.
