Rumor has it that now that Abu Mazen has been repudiated by the voters, he'll do the natural thing and join Kadimah. (Hat Tip: HT).

But seriously, folks, the terrorists now representing the Palestinians to the world are the ones without suits and ties. Assuming that this means that the good-cop-bad-cop game is over (and this is not a foregone conclusion), Israel has been presented with a window of opportunity to make a few crucial moves to improve both its demographic situation and its security situation. The fence that is being built to the west of Palestinian population centers must be moved far eastward to genuinely defensible borders. Another fence must be constructed in order to retain the Jordan Valley. All future terrorist acts must now be treated as state-sponsored terrorism and the Palestinians on our side of the fence should be evicted in response to any such terrorist acts.

Unfortunately, our current government, which is locked into a settlers-as-root-of-all-evil narrative, was caught completely flat-footed by the latest developments. It is unlikely to recover. But will the voters notice in time?

I hope that the voters notice - but I'm afraid that they won't.
