PA Elections--Postponed
By Micah Halpern

Sunday November 20, 2005

I'm Predicting:

Elections within the Palestinian Authority, scheduled for January 25, 2006, will almost certainly be postponed.

Why will they be postponed?
There's the excuse, and there's the real reason.

The excuse is that Israel is interfering with the election process.
Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas has begun laying the foundations for blame. When elections are brought up, he couches his comments with phrases like: they will take place as planned IF Israel will allow for free movement.

The real reason is that postponing the Palestinian Authority legislative elections is actually better in the long run, postponing the elections will help bolster the PA.
It will show that the government is standing up to Israel.
It will allow the leadership more time to convince the people that with time they will provide a better, wealthier Palestine.

If handled properly, it will give Palestinian leadership the opportunity to convince the people that they have a future - and the future need not include terror.
