    "On the hard side, the Israeli governement would have to be convinced to give up some authority while the Palestinians would have to formally accept guaranteeing those freedoms (which Hamas will never accept)." Polybios, I think with your last sentence, you said it all. It would be a wonderful solution, but I am afraid the applause by the audiences on both sides will simply not be there. If we forget about Hamas for a moment: I can't really imagine that a majority of Israelis would ever be so gullible (some would probably rather say crazy...) to lay their destiny in the hands of an Arab majority. If I would be Israeli, I certainly wouldn't. So, I'm afraid, as I wrote to JewishHeart, the future for both sides of the conflict looks rather gloomy today. But who knows, things can always suddenly change in life. Just not sure whether this rule also relates to the ME conflict....
