It is true that the security-work of the PA has been praised, also by Israel. And it is true that there is racism in Israel and quite a lot of on-going incitement against arabs. And it is true that we, as israelis, should put pressure on our government to fight this incitement and to promote peace, moderation, tolerance and common sense. I salute Mr. Eldar for this work. But, with all due respect, he is too soft on Abbas and, for example, Mustafa Barghouti ("Israel is the most despicable state in the world") and other leaders in Ramallah. So - being tough on Netanyahu and the government is a good thing that serve the interests of the State of Israel. Being soft on Abbas is counterproductive.
