Will the Fayyad plan succeed?

Here's a lengthy report on the progress and prospects of Salam Fayyad's plan for a 'Palestinian state' in general, and for the 'Dayton Forces' in particular.

I suggest that you read the whole thing. The bottom line is that while the Dayton Forces have been somewhat successful in stopping terror attacks Hamas, the 'Palestinian Authority' remains unpopular and is viewed as being illegitimate and controlled by the United States and Israel. What would happen if - God forbid - the IDF left Judea and Samaria is not hard to predict. And unless there are revenants living in Judea and Samaria, the odds of the IDF staying there for very long are not good.

Read the whole thing.

By the way, I searched more than 2,000 images to find a photo of Fayyad and Dayton together. The only picture I found in which they even appear in the same frame is here.

The PA has no real popular support to begin with and its only being kept in power by IDF bayonets. If those were withdrawn Hamas would make short work of the PA forces and Israel would find itself facing a Hamastan and Iran literally seconds from its capital.

I don't see Salam Fayyad making much progress when Hamas - the elephant in the room - is against it.

What could go wrong indeed
