A Palestinian State?

[Media Source*]

"As we have stated several times in the past, we want from the United States a clear political position for the implementation of the road map, as well as economic support," the Palestinian Authority president said.

"We hope to get this."

If President Abbas really desires for Palestine to be recognized as a state, (according to the road map at least) then he will first have to remove the terrorists elements within the West Bank. If Israel can do it's fair share of removing their own citizens from their own homes as part of the "peace process," Abbas certainly can remove terrorists organizations such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the newly formed Jundallah terrorist group (who may be suspected as having links to Al Qaeda).

But it seems there might be more trouble in Palestine.
GAZA (Reuters) - Egypt has stepped in to defuse a growing crisis over disputed Palestinian election results that threatens to inflame strife between President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party and Islamic Hamas militants.

Talks between Hamas and mediators led by a senior Egyptian intelligence official in a Gaza seaside hotel ended without a major breakthrough on Wednesday, but Hamas agreed to set up face-to-face talks with Fatah on Thursday.

If Hamas wins the elections (which is a strong possibility because of their social services) then the peace process will become effectively "moot" as Israel considers Hamas a terrorist organization seeking the death of it's own citizens. If Abbas can not deliver his promise to end terrorist activity in the West Bank whether through democratic persuasion or by force then their is no reason for the United States to support such a notion. If Abbas can not deliver then perhaps the Palestinian people can elect someone who can (if they desire to end terrorism that is).
