    I agree with you Ben - a normal life is something Palestinians would like to have - as all human beings do. The PA didn't give them this life. I was living long time in the past ten years in the Westbank and I know, what these Arafats and Shaats were doing to their own people. But: Israel never accepted the partner on the palestinian side. As in 1982 Shamir was first negotiating with Palestinians from gaza and the Westbank he came back and choosed Arafat, a man who was out of the game by sitting in Tunis. As Arafat was the partner, Oslo was agreed but never really implemented. Now it is Hamas: accepting the result would mean to talk with Hamas. Not accepting it means, to tell the new palestinian government to kill their members. And Kjeli: who offered the palestinians a state? what state? a state like it is gaza now? Remember Bosnia, Slovenia, Croatia - these are states in the sense of law of nations!
