According to Haaretz, Israel has removed its first inhabited West Bank settlement after violent clashes with the settlers wounded 37. Hundreds of settlers came from throughout the area despite Israeli roadblocks. Credit Israel with taking a real step toward peace. Meanwhile, CNN just had breaking news of a new suicide bombing. On the PA side, of course, the question is not whether Abu Mazen wants to confront the militants, but whether he can. I just don't see how the PA can fulfill their side of the bargain without developing a stronger security force, which causes me to doubt the wisdom of trying to force the Road Map right now at all.
