NY Times letter 2005 January 12: Mideast Prospects After Abbas's Victory

Mideast Prospects After Abbas's Victory

To the Editor:

Re ''Signs of Life After Arafat'' (editorial, Jan. 11):

Palestinian terrorism has not, as you claim, ''given the Israeli prime minister, Ariel Sharon, an excuse to refuse to negotiate a peace deal.''

Terrorism is non-peace. Terrorism is the antithesis of peaceful coexistence.

For there to be a chance of peace in the Middle East, Western countries must stop making excuses for terror. If terror stops, peace will be possible, and Israel will be thrilled.
