There is no miracle solution, and peace (for which the absence of terrorist attacks is a crucial element) will only be achieved in the long term, following an agreement between the representatives of both sides. That being said, the Palestinian Authority has largely respected the security agreement signed with Israel, and has managed to prevent terrorist attacks from taking place on the land under its control. This is the result of a principle of reciprocity in the Israeli-Palestinian agreement, even though it is both partial and fragile. It is also a result of the fact that it is the Palestinian interest to be governed by a regime that can ensure order and stability. The same logic could be applied in the future, and in a stronger manner, once Israelis and Palestinians have reached a peace agreement that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state.
