Here is the first Pal leader who has stuck resolutely to peace as an objective - and negotiations as the way to achieve it. No WB attacks on Israel during his watch, his new forces have routed militants in 4 West Bank cities so far, his PM is developing the economy, law & order apparatus etc. Yet he is slammed by one side, which claims that mighty Israel imposed this docility by heroic force of arms (rubbish!). And he is slammed by the other side, which says he has not faced up to Israel and been militant enough (total dreamland given the meagre cards he holds!). That he is not, even now, despite all Bibi's provocations and procrastinations, letting civil resistance take over via an intifada, says a lot about the guy. He was Israel's best and probably last chance for a fair, negotiated solution. Unfortunately Bibi is neither reasonable nor fair, he is totally locked into the Greater Israel enterprise and ethnic gain. The 3rd intifada is coming as sure as the sun rises.
