    What separates Fatah from Hamas is that Fatah is more mature and is worried about the well being of the Palestinians. It's priority is bringing peace to their people, not engaging in a pointless and endless war against Israel. In a certain way Abu Mazen and Olmert are trying to break a stale situation and go forward in implanting a true peace between Palestinians and Israelis. Change is hard and because these two guys are trying to change things they are incessantly being kicked in the face by their own people who would rather continue in a war situation than do the difficult concessions that would bring peace and progress to their children. It is easy for press person to criticize leaders, write what people want to read and worry only about the ratings of one's column. It is much harder to try to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Instead of the easy criticisms over Abbas's and Olmert's imperfections it would be great to hear people cheering their efforts.
