This Isn't Going to Work-I'm not sure if the Bush people really want a Palestinian peace treaty or just get some diplomatic cover. The Arafat people aren't that thrilled about the deal, and the violence from Hamas and company isn't stopping. Israel won't be serious about negotiating until Hamas is corralled; the PA knows that doing that would be civil war. That means that there will be no progress until there's a knock-down, drag-out between Fatah/PA and Hamas, and there's no telling who's going to win that death-cager. You can throw the "roadmap" into the dustbin of history.
