When PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas says he will fire the Hamas-led Palestinian Government before the end of the month unless they accept Israel's right to exist, he doesn't really mean what he's saying.

That's because he doesn't consider that recognising Israel really means recognising Israel - certainly not in so far as any of the armed Palestinian groups are concerned. Read about it here.

And people wonder why Gaza and the West Bank are such lawless and chaotic places and why the task of achieving peace in this region is so damned difficult.

The Palestinian leadership has made its decision and that is to inflict on its people more suffering in the the form of travel restrictions, daily humiliations and a basket case of an economy.

Then we will hear from the usual bunch of useful idiots who will blame it all on the zionists and the failed peace process rather than the intifada which the Palestinians inflicted on their neighbours.
