However, lets face the true. The PA is doing a great job in distancing itself from terrorism. However what happened in Itamar is twhat usually happens within Palestinian pathological nationalism. Whenever an important faction of the palestinian people are decided to build and are eager to convince Israel society and the world that is worth of taking risks and letting a Palestinian state be enacted, the criminals reappear and thwart the PR initiative of the rational and pragmatic. Palestinian nationalism is a pathological one. Its ideological basis is destruction. Palestinian terrorism will undermine whatever the moderated will build. Sooner or later they will make them toe the line and follow suit. That is the difference between Zionist nationalism which is about building.... and Palestinian nationalism which at the end of the day is about destruction.
