    Someone said Hamas was a mistake, but bear in mind that Israel is not that tolerant regarding non-violent protest either. Israel has actively implemented since 1967 a policy of de-developement. Make it so hard for the palestinians that they voluntarily leave. All Israeli laws are meant to strengthen the jewish state. I must say that on implementing different rules for different people I think the Israeli case is probably unprecedented. What Israel wants is ever more land and it has especially after the start of the second intifada and 9/11 succeeded in marginalising the legitimate palestinian complaints. Every resistance lethal or non lethal is now regarded terror. And no Palestinian leader will ever be fully able to please the Israeli government let alone a relatively weak figure as mr. Abbas. Unless Israel is willing and able to do some real soulsearching and the palestinians refrain from dramatic attacks ( which I fear either won't) I think this conflict is here to stay for generations to come.
