What Should the Palestinians Do?

abbasby M.J. Rosenberg

The efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have ground to a halt. The Netanyahu government clearly has no interest in any agreement that would require it to give up the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority has no interest in negotiating until the Israeli government demonstrates willingness to negotiate seriously over the West Bank.
