What a PA collapse would mean for Israel


What a PA collapse would mean for Israel?

Herb Keinon of the Jerusalem Post, recently offered an analysis of this question.
Faced with the possibility that the PA could collapse, Israel is essentially faced with two unattractive choices: drop the three conditions established when Hamas came into power and deal with a Hamas-led PA, under the logic that some address is better than none at all, or side with Fatah in its battle with Hamas.
With these two options, I'm can't help but insist on seeing what's behind door #3, Let's Make a Deal style.

Keinon concedes that both Fatah and Hamas are enemies of the Jewish State, however, he lacks the courage to suggest the only viable, albeit unattractive, option that exists, namely, a declaration of war on the PA / PLO / Hamas.

No, it's won't be pretty, and yes, the international community will cry out in righteous indignation, but it sure beats the alternatives.

The time has come for the Jewish People to stand up for their rights and stop apologizing to the world for wanting to live as proud Jews in our Homeland.

Enough.

B"H There you go again, Ze'ev,...making sense. Wasn't that deemed to be illegal some time ago by the Israeli Supreme Court? ;-) Hag Same'ah.

There is of course one more potential course of action - call a ceasefire, wait for the dust to settle and capitalise on a period of calm by resuming negotiations with Fatah.
