Anticipating the Upcoming Blame Game
AP is anticipating the collapse of the peace talks, looking towards "the day after," and who will take the blame:
The thinking is that few people believe a full peace deal within a year is achievable. And the impasse that has emerged over settlement construction has brought a difficult question to the surface: If the United States cannot compel Israel to extend a settlement freeze for a few months, how can the U.S. persuade Israel to make wrenching decisions over control of Jerusalem?
Question: During the previous 10-month settlement freeze, what did the Palestinian leadership do?
More alarmingly, where are the Palestinians now?
A new poll by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (via Daled Amos) finds that, overall, half the Palestinians support armed attacks against Israeli civilians. The PLO is sending signals that it will break reconsider its previous agreements with Israel.
