Livni has some idea on how to proceed. She will encourage the moderates within the Palestinians, who will eventually dispose of Hamas. The plan appears to be as wrongheaded and deluded as anything Olmert dreams about: 1. She prefers not to have a unity government in the PA, which may lead to a civil war if Abbas keeps negotiating. This will quickly disrupt and stop the negotiations. 2. She wants to establish a Pal state with temporary borders first. This will have to include Gaza, part of West Bank, and a free access road between the two. Qassams will go to the West Bank, and you know the rest. 3. Her idea of the final borders seems like Olmert: the "wall", and Jordan Valley in Israel. Perhaps she will be more generous. In any case, no chance for agreement. I think Abbas knows this. I wonder if he will even consent to a temporary borders idea.
