Palestinian Suicide

Fouad Ajami has a remarkably trenchant description of the situation recently played out in Palestine.

The Palestinians have lived, and for decades now, on a sense of historical entitlement. The world owed them a state come what may; it would be delivered to them even when their leaders faltered, even as they fell afoul of international norms and expectations. Now they know better.

Indeed. Much too late.
