If the PA was to fall because of the lack of funds to pay its employees and line its own pockets, what would be the most likely outcome?Palestinian Authority officials are confident Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to freeze tax revenue transfers to Ramallah will be short lived.
Combined with a now-ended aid freeze of some $200 million in US aid dollars Israel had the ability to force a PA collapse, analysts said, noting senior PA economic advisors' warnings that fiscal ruin was at hand.
However, according to the PA official Israel will not allow the PA to fall apart fearing Hamas would take its place.
Personally I feel that it would be good news all round for Israel. While ever there is a stuffed suit, spewing forth half truths, lies and damn big lies and while ever there are fools gullible enough to swallow it all, Israels credibility will always be called into question. With the PA gone then people will be forced to realise that there is no negotiating partner and never was one. Abu Mazen was/is nothing more than a distraction playing the heads I win tails you lose game to an audience that needed a cause to feel better about itself.
With Hamas running the show, Israel knows where it stands, the declaration of war has been made , so Israel can defend its citizens accordingly.
The end of 64 years of whining could be close to over.
