I agree with the previous letter. Until the Palestinians accept the reality of Israel, there is no sense in blaming Israel for the lack of progress. Nor is it wrong for the Quartet to demand that funding of a government should be predicated upon that government developing a civil society capable of making peace with its neighbors.
I do not want my tax dollars providing support for a society and a government that values creating suicide martyrs and targeting civilians. That the Palistinians have suffered and continue to suffer I have no doubt, but they must accept responsibilty for their predicament and come to the realization that fifty years of stuggle to destroy Israel has failed and gotten them nowhere.
Accept reality and stop blaming others for their failure.
