The Jerusalem Post raises a sensitivity that has been glossed over during the past few very turbulent days here. In a story headlined "PA Silence over Terror Raises Questions about Statehood", Herb Keinon describes the  Palestinian Authority's silence over last Thursday's terrorist attack in Israel's south as "deafening". It raises serious questions about the PA's readiness for independence according to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev. Even the master hypocrite Yasser Arafat "would issue pro-forma condemnations of violence during the height of the second intifada", he observes. The PA leadership has not managed to do even that.
