The PA has sought peace and been categorically rejected. The stone-throwers are people frustrated by the realization that Abbas cannot - no one can - achieve a Palestinian state. Israel has managed to prevent any serious negotiations and provoke a Third Infitada. And now Issacharoff wants to blame the PA. Has not the PA essentially upheld it's end of the bargain? Has it not stopped terrorist attacks against Israel from the West Bank? Has it not tried to negotiation in good faith? Who has stonewalled any negotiation? Which party allows the unrestricted attacks upon the other side by it's settlers? Which nation continues to allow it's settlers to destroy the orchards of the other side? Which nation uses a 'separation fence' to separate the farmers of the other side from their fields? The old excuse was that Arafat didn't want peace. The new excuse is that the PA hasn't tried. Twaddle. The truth is that Israel is not honest enough to be honest about it's self.
