To the Editor:
   For two generations, America has told Palestinians that their national aspiration to self-determination is legitimate--but peace first, then statehood. Yet when they are peaceful we ignore them--what doesn't bleed doesn't hold our attention. And when they militate, we wave a censorious finger and say "peace first".  So let's not pretend shock that "Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank will not indefinitely extend to Israel a period of calm while no corresponding reduction of the occupation takes place."
