|Analysis: Palestinian rebellion underway|
Yossi Melman - Jerusalem Post - What should we call the violence?
Intifada? Not an intifada? Grassroots terror? Stone intifada? The
sad truth is that the name doesn’t matter. he reality is that the
West Bank and Jerusalem are on fire. They have been burning for
several months, for as long as a year. The Palestinians are on a
path to confrontation. The status quo is dying, one way or another.
The latest tensions could escalate into a massive Palestinian
uprising, or Abbas might resign, or the Palestinian Authority might
dismantle, or the Oslo Accords might be canceled, as Abbas has
already threatened to do – or all these things may occur

|Weakened by Israel, Abbas Could Do Nothing to Prevent Fatal Attacks |
Amira Hass - Haaretz - As expected, Naftali Bennett rushed to place responsibility for the Old City murder on Abbas and the PA on Saturday night. In the eyes of the Palestinian public, this placement of responsibility only emphasizes Abbas`s pathetic situation. He doesn`t even go to Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa. He cannot leave roads passing through the Area C in the West Bank without permission from and coordination with Israel, and still Israel holds him responsible for what happens within its own areas of security control. The way in which Israel makes Abbas a laughing stock, in the eyes of the Palestinian public, only weakens his arguments against using weapons even more. [bz]
|Netanyahu`s Cabinet Proves: Abbas Was Right |
Haaretz Editorial - Israel’s response came the same day: authorization for illegal outposts in the West Bank, which proves the justice of Abbas’ claims.
The message from a government that whitewashes additional outposts is unambiguous: yes to continued occupation, no to a two-state solution. There’s no other way to interpret it.
In responding to a petition by rights group Yesh Din, the state said it intended to legalize all the outposts in the Shiloh area. This region amounts to six square kilometers. The area contains hundreds of unlawfully built houses. [bz]
