    "Hamas cannot be in the government and expect to be recognized by the world community while maintaining itself as a terror organization. The conditions of the Quartet cannot change since they reflect the principles upon which international norms are built." - Bird from Outerspace It is often the case that a statement sounds good but when looked into closely, simply falls apart. Considerations only in the abstract, often give rise to very faulty conclusions. It is therefore essential to try to relate abstract ideas to reality. Here is a clue one could get: The EU actually adopted the Spanish Peace Plan, where none of the Quartet conditions is insisted upon in explicit form. From this one would get the clue that everything conclusion you reached is false. It is so easy: 1. Quartet conditions CAN change. The present conditions are US conditions, but they could also have been EU conditions. 2. The conditions do not reflect immutable principles. I haven't even dealt with the first part of your post, which is actually based on circular logic which we do not respect on this Earth. "[Hamas] has won elections, and therefore must assume the responsibilities of a government. If they are not able to assume such responsibilities, they should resign and let others do the job of governing." Hamas can run a government better than Fatah. But when subject to a boycott they have a problem. If the issue is the boycott itself, we have to deal with IT, not with its consequences. P.S. Which school did you go to on Mars, the Venus-Geisha school? They don't teach logic there. Love is not based on logic.
