ABSTRACT
An editorial is presented questioning whether the West should continue to take a role in establishing an independent Palestinian state. Ehud Olmert's weakened coalition government means that Israel will have less power in negotiations with the Palestinians. The article argues that the democratically-elected but dictatorial government of Hamas is creating an atmosphere that will prevent the Palestinian government from acting as a responsible and viable state for decades.
