Is There Hope for the Palestinians — and the Peace Process?

When Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah submitted his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas last month, it was yet another reminder that Palestinians remain mired in a crisis of leadership and a cold civil war between their dominant factions.

For some, the ongoing spat between the Hamas terrorist organization and Abbas — a so-called moderate and sometime Holocaust denier — is a tragedy. An optimist, however, might see the current situation as an opportunity for more capable leadership to emerge.

Unfortunately, there are powerful incentives to ensure that Palestinian society remains dysfunctional.

At the root of the problem is the unquestioning pursuit of Palestinian statehood and the acceptance of armed struggle as a means of achieving that goal.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
