able to mobilise against these depredations.whether marionite,catholic,greek ortho,or any splinter group,how come they have not stood together?Could it be the distractions of a 'secular' PLO which then did an about face in 1988? I come back to my position.There is only one genuine Resistance/Liberation Movement in Palestine,Hamas.They have 3 strategies open to them:1.Armed struggle as with the ANC in SA.,2.Non violent civil disobedience as in India(won't work with israel),3.Negotiated settlement.Hamas favours 3 but trusts in God & keeps it powder dry.Do read 'Getting Hamas Strategy Right' in IPF Focus,Aug.9,2007.It details the people who are arguing for talks with Hamas(the list includes a former Mossad chief!).Today's headline in Haaretz:abbas says the rift is temporary.Uncle Sam must be gently nudging,so is the rest of the world,from Britain to Russia.
