Letter to the Editor

How heartening that Mahmoud Abbas declares that the State of Palestine that he hopes for will be a “peace-loving nation.” Now his task is to somehow square that with his embrace of Hamas, solemnly pledged to Israel’s destruction, as a partner in the formation of such a state’s government.

Mr. Abbas’s words remind me of another declaration of hope for “peace for our time” — by Neville Chamberlain in 1938.
