'Good terrorists' threaten 'armed struggle' if they don't get what they want

The 'good terrorists' from 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah organization have threatened once again to resort to 'armed struggle' if they are not able to get what they want at the negotiating table.
Addressing a pro-Fatah rally of more than 100,000 people in the Samaria city of Shechem (Nablus), the PA Mayor Jamal Muhsein threatened: "Whoever thinks that negotiations are the only choice for Fatah is wrong. On the contrary, all options are open, including armed struggle, as long as we seek peace and others do not. Jerusalem is the gate to peace as well as the gate to war."

Another high-ranking local representative of Fatah, which is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, told the crowd that his organization is "renewing its pledge to the PLO as it had done before."
The more we offer them open hands, the more we get back clenched fists.

I would like to ask Tzipi Livni and Ehud Barak what is the point of negotiating with people who threaten Israel with terror if ALL of their demands are not met? That is not a negotiation and its another illustration of why the "peace process" and the two state solution is dead. Far from being moderated by unity with Hamas, the PA in fact is becoming more extreme.

And (if I might add) how likely is it, even if they are given everything they ask for, that a similar statement will be made not long after they get it?

Kae Gregory, in the unlikely event the Palestinians got 100% of they wanted, they would just issue a new round of demands. The most dovish Israeli governments have asked in return for a Palestinian state, an undertaking from the Palestinians that they would give up and renounce all further claims upon Israel. This they have refused to do in exchange for statehood. And we all know why.

In fact, they have refused to acknowledge Israel as a Jewish State and have insisted upon the "right of return" which means flooding Israel with millions of Arabs and so ending its life as a Jewish State. No Israeli government will ever agree to either of the above points and the Palestinians won't settle for less. The real issue is not settlements or territory but interests and values. The latter, such as Israel's sovereignty and Jewish character will never be open for negotiation. That is why the prospects of even the two-state solution being realized in our day range from slim to none.
