What's the point of negotiations if agreements are not followed? These are not personal agreements. Israel signed on to the Road Map, agreeing to stop settlement expansion and even evacuate outposts. Abbas sees that negotiations are futile if Israel will not follow through, while expecting the PA to live up to it's side. If I were Abbas, I would leave too. What hope can he offer his electorate? I fear a radicalization of the Palestinian population. Israel's intransigence makes any moderate Palestinian leader look like a dupe.
