Mistake to let the PLO Loose in Washington

First of all, the Arabs don't get it. From the Road Map
At the Outset of Phase I:

* Palestinians declare an unequivocal end to violence and terrorism and undertake visible efforts on the ground to arrest, disrupt, and restrain individuals and groups conducting and planning violent attacks on Israelis anywhere.

* Rebuilt and refocused Palestinian Authority security apparatus begins sustained, targeted, and effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantlement of terrorist capabilities and infrastructure. This includes commencing confiscation of illegal weapons and consolidation of security authority, free of association with terror and corruption.
They haven't even pretended to comply. As for declaring an unequivical end to violence, they've done just the opposite and are demanding that Israel make concessions which are NOT part of the Road Map even before they talk about a ceasefire, let alone ending the violence against Israelis.

But what really pisses me off is Senator Lugar promising the terrorists even more aid than the $200 Million they are already getting from us this year. And Colin Powell saying, "I think it is still possible to keep going and then speed things up as more confidence is gained." When are the Arabs going to DO something to cause anyone to gain confidence that peace is their goal.
