As Abbas continues to sputter and stutter, and reject any calls to give up resistance and take up governance, you really need to think about what is Israel getting out of this? Not recognition. Nominal peace at best - a hudna. As we release convicted murderers or terrorists or resistance fighters, I ask you to look and see what the PA is doing. They prevent violence that only destabalizes the PA's monopoly on power. There is no evidence of them fostering a dialog fit for coexistence. All you see is vitriol and a culture of hate with indoctrination at children's schools. So, who's fooling whom?
