Margie, You are correct to say the PA never succeeded in policing their own areas. But you are way off the mark to say the reason is noone was interested in peace. That is quite ridiculous. Maybe you can give me an example in history where a people were asked to maintain law an order in isolated ghettos while an occupation force continued building settlements? The IDF was there not because of threats to Israel, they are there to protect the settlers. Hopefully all the diplomatic activity leads to something more serious than what we saw during Oslo...
