But Israel only knows the stick nowadays. Where is the incentive for PLO moderates like Abbas to continue preventing their people from engaging in terrorism? They get close to nothing in return, but instead even more settlers on their lands! Of course, the obvious futility of peaceful solutions and negotiations fuels extremists like Hamas. This has to be obvious to the Israeli government, too. And that it still doesn't reward the peacekeeping attempts of Abbas can only be interpreted as a deliberate policy to prevent the two state solution. The increasingly ridiculous excuses by Netanyahu NOT to move ahead on the road map can hardly be seen in any other light!
