The Israeli's are demanding the impossible from any Palestinian leader. Whether out of naivity (if only Arafat had tried really hard he'd have been able to stop the attacks on Israel) or a deliberate attempt to undermine the Palestinian leader and hence it's political organization, it's not clear.
Here's my question on Palestine which I don't know the answer to. Can anyone help?
Presumably Palestinians in the occupied territories can't vote for representatives in the Israeli parliament. (eg. this is different from NorthernIreland.) OTOH what about the Israeli settlers? Do they have a vote in the parliament? For which "electoral region"?
