The Journal Catches Road Map Amnesia
One reason I like the Journal is a story I read in today's Journal. It's the usual straightforward reporting, totally objective as far as it goes. But here's something I found annoying. The Journal correctly reports: "U.S. and Israeli officials complain that apart from helping to arrange an informal cease-fire, Mr. Abbas has avoided cracking down on militant groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad."
(Sigh.) It's not just a "complaint," guys. The Palestinians are required to crack down on millitants under the Road Map. And as long as the world media, and even the Wall Street Journal, keeps giving them a pass on that, they're never going to crack down on millitants.
