Joseph Massad: Oslo: Imploding the Palestinian State

Despite its surface appearance as a political compromise, this formula [Oslo] is in fact a reflection of the racial views characterizing (European Jewish) Israelis and Palestinian and other Arabs.
A resumption of steady funding continued after Arafat's death conditional upon Mahmoud Abbas's "seriousness" in pointing Palestinian guns at the Palestinians themselves, which he and the PA's thuggish security apparatuses have done. However, they have not been as effective as the US and Israel had wished, which is why US General Keith Dayton is assuming full control of the military situation on the ground in order to "assist" the Palestinians to deliver their peace part of the bargain to Israel.
