Gaza Thoughts

Roger L. Simon has a concise and dead-on post about events in Gaza, which concludes:
...if events continue without a major snafu, the ball will soon enough be in Mohammed Abbas' court. Gaza will be his playground and he will have Hamas and Islamic Jihad to deal with. I don't envy him.... As we used to say on our own playground, "No backsies!"
If the Palestinians want to prove to Israel and to the world that they are deserving of a state, they should endeavor to make Gaza a model of such a state. Of course, if this fails to occur, I'm sure that the blame will go to Israel.
