The Palestinians Are Choosing to Fall Behind


The Palestinians are once again refusing to talk, but this time the Arab world is leaving them behind.

Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and some Gulf states all plan to attend the Bahrain economic conference next week, despite pleas from the Palestinian leadership to boycott. That decision, writes Eyal Zisser, is a "slap in the face" to the Palestinians and

expresses an utter lack of faith in its path and leadership. Consequently, Palestinian Authority leaders now find themselves without troops and without support. The Palestinian public is fed up with the PA and doesn’t trust it anymore. Arab countries are following suit.

What may happen, Zisser writes, is that the Palestinians will lose the ability to determine their own fate.
