Yesterday in Arafatistan

In the Washington Times Joshua Mitnick covers the orgy of destruction in Gaza yesterday: “Palestinians rejoice, loot as Israel wraps up pullout.” Mitnick reports:

Despite Palestinian Authority pledges to keep Gazans out of the abandoned Israeli settlements for a few days, the Palestinian security forces did not prevent militants from torching synagogue buildings and firing guns in celebration, while looters made off with truckloads of debris.

They partied like it’s 1938, more or less as they hope to party in Israel proper. Is there anyone in his right mind who seriously thinks that conferring statehood on the PA will be conducive to the peace and well-being of the area?
