Some Good News Out of the Palestinian Territories:

The imminent formation of a liberal new party not tied to Hamas or Fatah, with many prominent supporters:

"This movement would be based on liberal ideas and advancing democracy and human rights in the PA," said Zakut. "The idea is to have a pragmatic movement that would support the idea of two states on the basis of the 1967 borders and PLO platform, while resolving the refugee problem in an agreed-upon manner based on the resolutions of the United Nations and Arab League."
