There is a fundamental reality on the West Bank, in Baghdad and in every other haven of terror merchants: we can't find them ourselves. If we storm their homes, we're the enemy. If we provide them a concrete and superior alternative to their current squalor ... THEY'LL root out the thugs. The thugs are thugs, they're thugging up the Palestinians and Baghdad denizens with their thuggery, they're not inspiring loyalty and support from their mission. They're inspiring primal survival options at the end of a gun barrell.

The Palestinian Authority is the only entity that can root out Hamas and the other criminal killers lurking in the 'hood. The Israelis can never identify, locate and arrest or kill the bad guys. Impossible. As we Americans, in Baghdad, can never locate all the Baathist and Fedayeen scum going door to door. We need the community to point us to the right doors, and that's happening. It'll happen in the West Bank tenaments too, but it'll be PA security guys taking the garbage out. Or there's no end to the terror.

Well said and true.

Also well said and true. Surprisingly few people seem to understand that though. Nor do they understand that of the PA DOESN'T take the garbage out, and there's no end to the terror after Palestine becomes an independent state, there will be hell to pay under international law.

The president is forcing various organizations to suit action to rhetoric in this, and they're aware they line they walk is very fine.
