the violence in southern Israel and Gaza won't resolve anything and can't be ignored either. If Israel has approached the PA recently with provisional borders, etc. which is a staged process, why are they not utilizing the mechanisms with Hamas and factions in a staged process - a start with a permanent truce agreement would have achieve this. What's happening is another cycle of warfare against one another. The problem is that Hamas has to be included indirectly with these negotiations because they're not going away.
