It’s too late for that.
Abbas has outsmarted himself into a tight corner, and Lapid’s incredible blindness to reality is just what the right-wing camp needs.
Every time Abbas say “no,” the closer Israel gets to saying “yes” to declaring sovereignty over Jewish population centers in Judea and Samaria.
Lapid also seems to have forgotten one little item in his sophomoric ideas of peace: Gaza. That is that little piece of God-forsaken land that Egypt was thrilled to be rid of in the Six-Day War in 1967. Without an agreement between Abbas and Hamas, Kerry can forget about his Mission Impossible,
The same is true if Abbas and Hamas ever do reunite, because that would mean the vowed acceptance of terror, although Abbas could get around that by calling it “resistance.”
