    What is the point of getting mired in written documents and agreements?? It is abvious that the Palestinians are split between the Hamas "elected" doctrine and the PLO and its "authority" to negotiate with Israel. What is the point of agreeing to amendments when the issue of who "represents" the Palestinians is still up in the air?? The recent internal strife between Hamas and Fatah and the assassination of a senior Pal General is very troubling. Abbas is on the right track wanting a referendum on the structure of a deal. If the Palestinians decide on X then Hamas will have to abide by it. The secondary issue of who will run the show could change after successful results. Anything else or any changes would be premature.
