Quotes-start.png If the failure of the effort does produce violence, and possibly a third intifada, the impact will land hardest on the Palestinians.

It also could lead to a House of Representatives refusal to continue U.S. financial support, battering the Palestinian structure and economy. Quotes-end.png
