Palestinians invite disaster, yet again
Richard Z. Chesnoff
Here's one of the Mideast's few sure things: When there's a bad decision to make, Palestinian
leadership will make it.
Consider the region's latest intelligence buzz. Anyone with even an iota of sense would take
one look at the loss of Lebanese life and property caused by Hezbollah's war on Israel and
steer clear of provoking Israel's army again. Instead, Hamas is reportedly studying the
Lebanese war to figure out ways to adopt Hezbollah's fighting tactics. The results are bound to
be a new nightmare not just for Israel, but for the Palestinian people themselves.
What's more, these Hezbollah-style weapons and guerrilla cells will apparently also be used
against Hamas rival Fatah in the mini-Palestinian civil war that's now underway.
If I could, I would grab hold of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh's well-tailored lapels,
shake him and shout: "Idiot! Don't you understand what you're doing to your own people?"
And the problem runs deeper than the leadership. Where is the silent Palestinian majority? It
is up to them to come forward and demand their representatives stop wasting money on arms and
bombs, stop denying Israel's existence - in short, stop hating and start building.
