The rallying cry against Jews is so effective that instantly national issues such as energy, education, and development are ignored in order to bash the state of Israel. The history of the Palestinians is to constantly ignore their best interests at the behest of their so-called friendships with foreign powers that are at odds with Israel's allies. If Palestinians can ignore agitation from outsiders, they might have a chance to integrate the two societies once and for all. At no point have the Palestinians received any enduring benefit from their friends the enemies of the West. Abbas cannot bribe the US by shaking hands with our enemies. They are too weak and self-imploding for anyone to care. Its a lose - lose for Palestinians, again!
