Hamas and its partners have sent dozens of rockets into Israel in recent days.
It puts the PLO claim that it is ready for statehood in a different light, for it reminds us that Ramallah has no control over events in Gaza, including making war on Israel. It renders any U.N. vote on Palestinian statehood even more obviously unreal and unhelpful. It also shows how foolish recent U.S. and E.U. policy has been.
