Rick has a remarkable post about Abu Mazen and the Palestinians' nebech strategy. I would excerpt his final comments, but you should go read the entire post. Rick is one of the most well-read bloggers around.
And speaking of which, while you're there, see his previous post, One People With One Heart, where I am quoted in between Avi Dershowitz and Rabbi David Wolpe. Everyone should be so flattered, at least once in a lifetime.
