What a mess the decades-long failed policies have wrought. Facts on the ground have been established, which was the goal. Didn't go as far as Begin et. al. wanted, hasn't gone as far as the settlers want, and now a serious leader is calling for self-development for his people, and also self-government. Sounds very responsible. People with jobs and a future may be less inclined to bomb buses, buildings, etc. This is something the US should invest in.
