    For Example as you restate from the article: "If Obama can't stop settlements how can I" there actually is a way that Abbas can stop settlement construction, a way which Obama cannot. A FINAL STATUS PEACE AGREEMENT If Abbas, negotiated one, then there would be no more settlements, they'd be agreed part of Israel or part of Palestine, but they'd not be in that Grey Area. So Silvienne, this chicken or egg game can go on forever, and since the Status Quo does not suit Palestinian interest, maybe Arab interest, would it not make sense to do everything to change it? And don't you think the best way to change would be to have negotiations and final status agreement to end the conflict. Now lets be reasonable, who do you think is best equiped to deliver such a deal, Abbas, Hamas,Barghouti, Dahlan as I don't see any other strong leaders.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
