You are right, in complete agreement the settlers and Hamas are torpedooing the peace talks. We all knew it would happen, now it is happening. Let me repeat the most correct assesment of the ME conflict: There is a war going on between the moderate majority and the extremist minority. The past 100 years the extremists from borth sides were on the winning hand, the moderates had to lick their wounds, bury their dead, resettle after expulsions, rebuild their destroyed houses. As long as the moderate don't integrate this asseement in their talks, peace or justice will not exist for anybody.
