Fayyad is a good man, and according to the Europeans he is doing what is needed to create a state infrastructure. His time scale of 2001 is agreed to by the Quartet. I hope his vision materializes, but so far this is a single man's vision. Fayyad is not a leader of a political party. Remember Bashir Jemayel in Lebanon?

From the settlers, to Netanyahu (remember Rabin?), to Hamas, Hizballah and other Arab extremists (remember Sadat?), the world if full of danger.
