A PAL state is an unqualified "idee fixe" in some people's minds. Ostensibly in the interests of Palestinians' rights. So, when do those champions of Human Rights pressure the new PA government on its Human Rights policies, or lack thereof? Or on what its says about freedom of religion? Or the freedoms of speech, and the press? Or whether it will prosecute cases of honor killings? Sorry, but creating a state in which Human Rights doen't exist won't conduce to the benefit of Human Rights in the world. It's that simple.
