"The Palestinians are so split into factions that Mahmoud Abbas is afraid to move in our direction and is powerless." - Yonatan Israel has spent the years since the death of the egregious Arafat trying to destroy Abbas. He has survived despite the efforts of Sharon, Olmert and Netanyahu. He is more than agreeable to making peace. "And even if he did have the courage, there would always be those who would oppose him and scuttle any peace negotiations." - Yonatan Only if Israel allows it's extremists to scuttle the negotiations. Abbas has done well at suppressing terrorist in those areas where he has the power to do so. "We face the same problem with our political parties and our parties, but at least we have the tools of government to enforce any decisions made." - Yonatan Which is why the government does not restrain the Settlers. Israel denies the 'tools of government' to Abbas. Yet Israel is less effective at restricting it's terrorists than Abbas is at restraining his.
