Elections within the Palestinian Authority, scheduled for January 25, 2006, will almost certainly be postponed.
Why will they be postponed?
The excuse is that Israel is interfering with the election process.
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.
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.
