Melanie Phillips speaks out

The Enduring Tragedy

[...]The release of the 400 completes Israel’s promise to release a total of 900 prisoners as a goodwill gesture. There cannot be many nations in the world who, when the enemy is still attacking them, would set a total of 900 enemy combatants free to continue to attack them as a goodwill gesture. Predictably, the Palestinians said this gesture was not enough.
The key point is this. Israel made an obligation and is standing by it. The Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, by contrast, has done virtually nothing to meet his obligation — which is supposed to stand prior to anything Israel is required to do — to dismantle the Palestinian infrastructure of terror; and yet he is not being held to account.
Because he is not Arafat, because he wears a suit and speaks softly and talks about an end to the culture of violence, the west is happy to take him at face value. Big mistake.[...]

I guess that speaks for itself.
