But I thought that the Iraq war was going to make any kind of negotiations in the Palestine-Israel conflict impossible. And wasn’t it the case that the Bush administration was supposedly totally ignoring the problem?

JUNE 29, 2003: Mr. Arafat’s Fatah declares a six-month truce, and Hamas and Islamic Jihad announce a three-month cease-fire to stop attacks against Israelis. Hours later, Israel pulls troops back from the northern Gaza Strip.

I remain skeptical that this will all work out, but certainly the critics missed the boat here.
