'Negotiations are intended to buy us time until the balance of power changes' sez...

... Hatem Abd al-Qader, the Fatah official in charge of Jerusalem, in an interview on al-Jazeera (Arabic) that was broadcast on Monday night.

Let's go to the videotape.

Peace? Two-state solution? End of conflict? Nowhere to be found....

What could go wrong?

For the Palestinians, peace at most is about living with the fact of Israel until it either is defeated in a future war or it disintegrates and disappears from the Middle East.

In that regard, they are patient. The Crusaders after all, lasted in Eretz Israel about two centuries and Israel has been around but a fraction of that time on earth.

or ... the Palestinians aren't patient but faction-ridden, weak and a relatively recent spin-off from a wider politicized pan-Arab pan-Islamic culture fabricating their cultural foundations from plagiaristic whole cloth while acting out as geopolitical drama queens hopelessly addicted to adolescent self-inflation, suicidal posturing, and petty feuds. And Israel has been in dynamic relation to Eretz Yisroel going way back. And who knows one day the Palis may grow tired of their Crusader revanchism.
