    If we (Israel) will have to face (in negotiations) the ideas and demands of Hamas, then there will be no peacedeal. If, on the other hand, we will meet the ideas of Abbas and Fatah at the table, then we might get along, but that will bring back the split and Hamas will break away again - to Gaza. The show in Cairo is only meant to work as a PR-method during the period from now until the vote in the GA (UN) september. Now - the international community must not allow terror-Hamas to get into the family of nations. This has to be stopped. You can´t keep Shalit and shoot rockets at civilians in Israel, and at the same time be a peacepartner. The world must face the challenge and finally understand that the islamic militants (Hamas and the others) have an agenda of war against Israel. Why is it that Israel soon is about to celebrate 63 years, and the palestinian leaders still are busy with silly and empty ceremonies?
