Israeli analysis and the government is gambling on Abbas just bluffing. But they forget that Netanyahu is a known quantity. There is no good faith intent in Netanyahu. And his coalition is proof he has no intents to make peace on any terms Palestinians will accept. His and the government's actions are all the proof the Palestinians need. Lack of good faith and benign intent has been demonstrated repeatedly since February alone. Israeli gov actions speak loudly. So Abbas is no rabble-rouser and won't call the Palestinians to arms. Is killing people the only action that will bring a Likud government to consider stopping? If so, it seems a poor standard. And if Netanyahu is looking for more than the peace of the conqueror, he'll need to demonstrate more then just contempt for his allies and for prior agreements made by his own party and government. Call Abbas bluff if you think it is one. But be prepared to take back the $1 billion in costs of occupation if he's not.
