    There is a lesson in this editorial;Israel refuse to learn."The rationale was the supposed willingness of PM Ehud Barak to give up the Holy Place'Ed.So,is that visit to Al-Aqsa was 'Burning Bridges" ?I call it,inflating a Castle in the Air.The sad truth,Israel is muddling on. Always try a different key when always the locks are changing.The last key finding Partner, unilateral disengagement,then diverdecy,then convergency,all that in a space of one year. Is't a case of the Jewish Bull Syndrom ? All failed, now Abass revived the policy of 'finding a partner'.What there is in Abass that stood him above the resut ? A President who can not clean the street of Gaza from his opponents weapons?A President who can't push policies without giving warnings to his deaf enemies ? If Arafat survived with Israel believing his lies and bribing the opposition with the doners money;Hamas are bigger liars and Abass with out doners money.The Partner is yet to emerge. No Bridges to burn.
