Real peace | Jerusalem Post: "The difference, we are told, is that for the first time, a Palestinian leadership has emerged that is truly interested in accepting the two-state solution: namely, a Palestinian state alongside Israel. This is a striking claim, both for what it says about the Palestinians now and what it says about the last few decades of diplomacy. Israelis, after all, have been hearing that Palestinians recognize Israel's right to exist since 1987, when Yasser Arafat 'renounced' terrorism and the US opened a dialogue with the PLO. We heard the same again in 1993, with the signing of the Oslo accords."
