The Palestininans are not my role model for how a people should act. But they HAVE wised up, and they have recognised Israel.

The Palestinians are playing the usual games, designed to confuse those in the West who are not paying close attention.

Abbas and Fatah recognize that a country called Israel de-facto exists. They refuse to recognize that it has a right to exist, and especially refuse to recognize that it has a right to exist as a Jewish state. The terrorists in Hamas won't even do that much.

That recognition (or a truthful promise that successful negotiations will result in it) is a prerequisite to any meaningful peace talks. If the Palestinians will not live and let live, there is no benefit for Israel in blessing the creation of a hostile Palestinian state on their border. The Israelis know that – even if many in the West don't.
