    Here goes a fifth try. Remeber the old "freedomfighter/terrorist" Shamir? he swore there was no such an entity as palestinians and that peace with this entity would not be possible as long as this nonentity did not recognise Israel's divine right to hold onto all of Judea & Samaria. But in the end he agreed to talk and to come to an agreement, in spite of his rejectionist views. Remeber when Hamas did observe their hudna with Israel and Israel respondedby immediately entering the WB and carrying out some of its targeted assasinations? Real good confidence builder, eh, Brand? A hudna could not be any worse than the status quo unless of course your intennt is to continue thhee present status quo for your own political purposes, just as olmert did with har homa and maale adumim, a few days after annapolis and then talk as if he had no idea what was going on. Meanshile the building continues while they talk and you're fine with that.
