    ..Whether he is able to negotiate a good deal (this depends on Israel's goodwill), and whether he is able to enforce it, is the big question, and remains to be seen. What is clear is that for there to be peace, Israel must be generous in final status talks, and give Abbas and the Palestnians good reason to risk possible civil war in order to reach an historic peace. And then Abbas' forces must be armed and trained to take on any peace refuseniks. Israel (or intl forces) must be prepared to intervene if this goes badly. With a strong final status agreement, and the disarming of militants, there can be peace.Miss any part of the above (a strong, generous agreement AND disarming the militants), and the peace process is, unfortunately, destined to fail. We can debate if Fatah is moderate or extreme, but it is really beside the point. Without confronting the extremists, a Palestinian State will never be created. And Fatah/PA/PLO will only confront them if they are well armed, well
