Akiva Eldar, as usual, misses the salinet point of whichheis writing about. The reason progress was possible in Ireland is because the IRA after decades of terrorism realized their tactics were not working and were not going to work to further their cause. They then did the one and only thing that could get them what they wanted: Give up terrorism, stop bombings and shootings and engage in purely political undertakings without the threat of violence behind them. It was this that led to the Good Friday Framework which eventually led to the present state. This decision led to greater international support and pressure on the British and Ulster to respond in kind. The Palestinians have yet to reach the same conclusions or understandings among themselves or with the Israelis. Akiva Eldar, as always predictable, can only see through a glass darkly.
