The corruption makes Al Capone look like an amateur.
The status quo has changed because the Palestinian Authority is disintegrating. Bar-Ilan lecturer and Middle East expert Mordechai Kedar correctly saw the future several years, and wrote here last year, that the Palestinian Authority may very well dissolve into eight states of Gaza plus the seven major Arab cities in Judea and Samaria.
Peres will never understand this. Nor will the State Dept. Nor will Catherine Ashton. Even Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not understand this, because all of them live out of reality, flying from head of state to head of state and occasionally meeting the people for photo-ops.

Rabin tried for peace. He proved the Peter Principle by being sucked up into the delusions of “leaders” who are leading their own reflections.
Rabin really deserves a better memory, but no one does his legacy more disservice than those who think they are praising him.
Peres’ personal status quo will continue because next year, we will be subject to the same self-serving and useless gab.
Rabin was co-opted into the Oslo Illusions, but as a Jew, he really deserves better.
