Implausible deniability

While Bush and Olmert keep conspiring to slice up Israel, rockets keep raining on jews in the South. Rockets fired by adherents of the Religion of Peace (©).
Hamas claimed it fired two Katyushas last night and another today aimed at Ashkelon, a port town about 10 miles from the Gaza Strip that is home to strategic fuel depots and electrical stations that supply power to most of southern Israel.
President Bush visited the region last week to encourage the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to continue negotiations leading to a Palestinian state. According to diplomatic sources, Israeli and Palestinian negotiating teams met today as the rockets were landing in Sderot and Ashkelon.
A more severe form of cognitive dissonance I have never seen. Negotiate giving ever more land away with the people who've been trying to kill you for decades, while they are bombarding you daily with ever more sophisticated rockets.

What am I missing here?
