A palestinian state is impossible without leftist control in Israel. However the israeli left cannot win and election and advance their agenda so long as Abbas plays footsie with Hamas and refuses to guarantee the security of Israel as a JEWISH state as part of any peace settlement. Therefore there can be no peace in our time, and no palestinian state in our time. Fortunately for Israel, Al Queda and Bin Laden continue to threaten the US with terror attacks unless Amereica supports palestinians, thereby continuing to reinforce the connection between Al Queda and the palestinians in the average american voter's mind. Even Obama finally figured this out. Time is NOT on the side of the palestinians.
