The PA should have some good elections for all sorts of offices including parliament and the presidency but also local councils. Without that, one suspects that all the maneouvering (UN etc) is actually just a way for those in power to remain there. Which is basically why there is no traction for negotiations. To put it another way, this whole thing is going nowhere as long as half of the Palestinians would rather be Israeli citizens. Don't worry about the NYT, nobody in their right mind would pay actual money to read them anyways. And: Bravo, Gilad!
