This is why going to Oslo was so wrong. Arafat's plan was to slice pieces away from Israel and then force a wedge between Israel and its only friend, the USA. Arafat's plan was always to eventually go to the UN and unilaterally declare an independent state, leaving the UN to do its dirty work and a job on Israel. The thing the Palestinians still do not understand is that even if the UN comes in to "handle things", there is still going to be the need for direct negotiations. The interlocutor will pass messages between sides and we will land up in the same place as we are now because there are essential security and Jewish issues that have to be met, and everyone understands this. So Palestinians, why not just negotiate directly. Your long term interest will be better served working with the Jews than working as puppets for Islamic extremism.
