Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed not to allow the establishment of a Palestinian state.
The negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis have failed. They have been little more than attempts by Israel to stall the process and buy itself more time to present the Palestinians with a fait accompli of settlement expansion, the consolidation of its new borders, the isolation of Palestinians within the isolated ghettos in Gaza and the West Bank, and an emphasis on the Jewish character of the state.
There are a few options: Palestinians could return wholeheartedly to armed resistance, regardless of its risks and threats to the Palestinian cause and people.
Or they could declare, unilaterally, that the negotiations have failed and wash their hands of them and all that they have produced. This includes the Palestinian Authority, which Israel only views as a vehicle for policing the ghettos in which the Palestinian people are blockaded and contained.
