Intifada victory?

Charles Krauthammer asserts that the Palestinian intifada is over and that the Palestinians have lost. Only yesterday I had thought to myself that a fairly lengthy period had elapsed since the last Palestinian attack, but I wasn't sure if I was right.

In today's Washington Post, Krauthammer says that there have been no attacks in the past three months. Krauthammer says more attacks will come, but the fence and the targeting of terrorist leaders has rendered terror as no longer a "reliable weapon".

I hope he's right and we can get that peaceful two state solution that I had assumed would never come.
