    While I hope the conference is successful and results in a two state scenario with all parties satisfied enough to move forward peacefully and focused on commerce and cooperation, I would hesitate to think that the Palestinians are too exhausted for a new infitada. This is not a compliment nor a critism. I think if there is anything the Arab world has show the rest of us it is that nothing unites them more than a common ememy and that individuals are prepared to die for the common goal. Whether the methods they employ to do so are dispicable or not is also not the issue. The issue is that since the French in Algiers the Muslim concept of Shahid has played a major role in the modern era. This is how they fight, and it is very difficult to score a knockout victory against a people who will sacrifice youth after youth in non strategic, low value attacks that just cause wanton fear and mayhem. Hopefully progress is made.
