Mark my words, if Israel retaliates, it will make the news as a big story.
I hope I'm wrong, and more than that I hope the Palestinian Authority gives Israel no justification for retaliating, but in my mind, neither option
is very likely. I really do hope I'm wrong, though, and have to eat these words.
The lack of inter-Palestinian physical conflict can only suggest a high degree of ideological agreement.
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Palestinian leadership shares the rejectionist creed, which says that the Jewish people has no
national rights to independence in this land, and that the only legitimate Palestinian state is one that replaces Israel, not one living in permanent
peace alongside us.
