might bring peace in the Region. I think that is what Daniel Pipes is meaning here.

If there is a real change of heart, with a real crackdown on Palestinian killers, a real amelioration in the PA's information and education politics, a total stop to all financial aid, including defunding UN Palestinian-specific organizations, and if a real debate takes place as to what could and should be a peaceful future for the children of the region, then, peace in 30 years is a realistic goal.

But each day lost in wishful-thinking about "democratic" elections, each dollar spent on the "Liberation of Palestine" delusional dream are slowing down progress.
