Reacting to the inevitable

The Washington Times reports that Ariel Sharon has ruled out negotiations with the Palestinians, accusing them of doing nothing to stop terror attacks a day after a double suicide bombing killed 10 Israelis. Sharon canceled a meeting with Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia, tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, after the Ashdod bombing, and he ruled out any talks for the near future. Good. But why was Sharon willing to meet with Qureia prior to the latest bombing when it was as clear then as it is now that Qureia is doing nothing to stop terror attacks?
