    Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians face a Catch-22. As the Sun's editorial, "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) points out, a unity government between Mr. Abbas' Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza is a necessary precondition to...
  • Hamas will never accede to peace with Israel

    The Sun editorial "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) is a triumph of wishful thinking over analysis. Its self-contradictions and omissions include: •Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "would have to exercise the kind of statesmanship that has...
  • Don't blame Israel for the failure of talks with the Palestinians
