ABSTRACT
This article comments on the prospects for peace between Israel and Palestine now that Mahmoud Abbas is leading the Palestinians. The Palestinian suicide attack at the Stage Club on the beach at Tel Aviv was the work of Islamic Jihad but authorized by its leaders in Damascus. This murderous attack, which killed five Israelis and wounded about 50 civilians, highlights the price Israel is paying by reducing its military operations in order to give time to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen, to build up his strength. Everything good that is happening in the Middle East will be at risk if the terrorists launch more attacks, because Israelis will then have no alternative but to retaliate. There is no way of knowing how much time Abu Mazen has to translate words into deeds. Yasir Arafat had the opportunity but not the will.
