Hello Danite, Like you, I have no objection to unilateral moves by Israel. They will get the situation closer to its final resolution. It will take time for both Israel and Hamas to adjust their old ideologies to the real world. Kadima has begun to do it in Israel, and Hamas is running for the elections (a progress compared to 1996), and is talking about indirect talks with Israel. This is also abig change for them. I hope that by 2010, the sides will be ready for final peace talks. Until then, more slow progress.
