ABSTRACT
Despite resistance from right-wing Israeli and Palestinian groups, 'road map' to peace has been accepted by both Palestinian prime minister Mahmoud Abbas and Foreign Minister Ariel Sharon. This is a positive development, however the total sidelining of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat in the process will temper the roadmap's legitimacy in eyes of many Palestinians so the threat of further suicide attacks will not completely disappear.
