When Pigs Fly
In an article at TownHall.com, Caroline B. Glick, deputy managing editor of The Jerusalem Post where the article first appeared, wrote:
During his meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last Saturday, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas told Rice that the PA had ceased all incitement activities against Israel. Yet on the same day that they met, the PA's official news service WAFA "reported" that Israelis were sending hordes of wild pigs to Palestinian villages around Hawarah village in the Nablus district to attack them and destroy their fields. The PA's official news service even interviewed Hawarah Mayor Mansour Dmaidi, who backed these ludicrous and incendiary statements.
If true, the Palestinians would, at the very least, have fresh meat.
Seriously, Abbas will say anything to keep the checks coming from the Bush administration. President Bush would love to be seen as the man who 'tore down the wall' and brought peace to the Israelis and Palestinians, so he just keeps writing checks in return for empty promises; the same empty promises that inspired the administrations of Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, and Clinton to underwrite the peace process. The truth that administration after administration refuses to recognize is that we can't buy a peace the Palestinians don't want!
