- Israel’s Peace Partners? – Alan Joseph Bauer
An American jury last month returned a guilty verdict against the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. The group universally accepted as the one that must negotiate some type of final-status peace deal with Israel has been found guilty of offering material support in half a dozen terrorist attacks that resulted in nearly 500 dead and wounded people in Jerusalem between 2002-2004.
One of the most powerful arguments presented at the trial revolved around the continuing payments to Palestinian terrorists in Israeli jails. These payments occur every month and they are occurring now. If the PA had turned over a new leaf, one would expect that it would stop giving money to convicted terrorists and the families of suicide bombers.
