Palestinians protest peace

With the Middle East peace confab going on at Annapolis, Palestinians marched, protested, and rioted in Gaza and West Bank. They weren’t protesting for peace, though; they are against it, and angry at Abbas for daring even to talk about peace with Israel. Video from kasper10623:

I saw a television report from the Palestinian territories last night, where the reporter interviewed, through an interpreter, a middle-aged Palestinian woman. She said, “Fatah looks out for themselves. Hamas looks out for themselves. But no one looks out for the people.”

Aha! I thought, a ray of hope! Then she continued, “If Israel won’t agree to a settlement, why shouldn’t we use suicide bombers? What else can we do?”

Evidently her objections to Fatah and Hamas have to do with corruption, not ideology. Israel has been trying to make a deal for over thirty years now. The Palestinians have failed to live up to virtually every major commitment they have made over that time, and now elect terrorist governments who wish to fight to the death. These are not easy people to make peace with . . .
