Danite, everybody in Hamas is changing his tune, insiders and outsiders, as I noted in #39. You now hear the noises, and at some point they will have a policy change. You make a distinction between real "moderation" and real "survival tactics". There is no distinction. People (and animals too) don't change because they want to. They do it for survival. But the outcome is moderation. There should In any case, be a change in policy, as it appears there will be. Zahar talks of negotiating with Israel; Meshal already did. At some point there ought to be formal negotiation. This will show there is actual change. I discussed my peace plan a few times, and a minute ago sent Jeff Northridge a fuller description. We need Abbas to legitimate qan agreement, which would then be "approved" in a general elections. Hamas will remain minor trouble makers. In any case, Hamas now wants Abbas to negotiate (takes the pressure off themselves). I prefer it this way; better deal will be gotten.
