    I have tried to reply to your points twice, and this is another go. Unless someone at good old liberal Haaretz wants you to have the last word... - this "plan" talks about disarming Hamas before even allowing them to take part. This is after the Palestinian people showed in an internationally supervised democratic election that a large proportion of them supported Hamas. Who should decide who represents them, they themselves or someone in the US of Palestinian extraction? There is no symmetry between disarming settlers and disarming Hamas - it is rather like talking about disarming Palestinians inside Israel and disarming the IDF. Hamas won't accept Israel in any form? There have been contradictory statements, but recognition within the 1967 borders is clearly a serious possibility: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1104397.html Whether I (or you) want peace is irrelevant. Let's just hope there are enough people on both sides who do.
