I havn't read JPC for a while now but this is really refreshing to read.
What do you do when faced with an enemy who openly state "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it... There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad... The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, killing the Jews."?
You DIVIDE and CONQUER. Isolate the extremists - show that rejectionism is simply not an option. Respecting extremism will only foster further extremism. Mahmoud Abbas is seen as a moderate, yet he himself is a holocaust denier - it was the subject of his university doctorate. Hopefully one day, his view will too be seen as the extremist view in the Palestinian leadership, but this will only be achieved by excluding the current fringe views and promoting the moderate
