    "In fact evidence supporting the exact contrary claim exists. Israel evacuates Gaza and grants it to the Palestinians. Sure this is not the end of the issue, but it sure would have been nice if they had not used this opportunity to shoot rockets from Gaza into Israel, no?" Your choice of words is revealing. Israel GRANTS Gaza to the Palestinians? What Israel really did was to extricate themselves from a dead-end situation, with nothing else in mind but their own interests. As for the Gazans, they have their prison walls widened - an improvement, but scarcely one deserving of gratitude. You cannot realistically believe that such a move turns extremists into moderates. Let's change the perspective. Assuming there was an definite end to all hostile acts committed by Palestinians against Israelis: Would all these religious-nationalist Zionists abandon their quest for Erez Israel at the expense of their Arab neighbours? Would they accept that East Jerusalem is Arab? Would they agree to leave the settlements in the West Bank? Extremists on both sides are not impressed by positive moves of the other side.
