Nailed It!
Moral Clarity BUMP !

This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of good stuff that is worthy attention. I keep separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson, Lee Harris, David Warren, Orson Scott Card. You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about).

Dennis Ross has always seemed to me to have great insight into the Pali-Israeli Conflict. I know he has interviewed Asarat hundreds of times.

Anyone else have a take on him?

Did nobody else see what Arafat saw? Each refusal by Ara to accept an Israeli offer brought pressure from outside Israel to offer more and more concessions in the firm conviction that this terrorist trash was sincere and wanted peace. All that was demanded of him was an empty offer to stop terrorism, which brought no sanctions when not complied with. His response each time was to up the terror. The result of refusal each time was a reward, not a punishment

Why should he make peace when holding out could have netted him the whole cake eventually based on past experience of increasing the reward as a response to failure to make peace.

Israel tries to exact punishment for terror in the form of bombings and rooting out of terrorist cells but I am beginning to suspect that the PA is Bre'r Rabbit and enjoys being bombed and humiliated, if not for the act then for the rich award of media attention and sympathy it reaps.
