    Hamas will wither away once the Peace Process reaches "critical mass". The PA has to get it together for this to happen, but more critical, Israel has to come to grips with the fact that the large colonies deep inside Palestinian Territory can not remain in their current form. One reason why Israel targetted the PA so much, instead of Hamas, is to insure this critical mass never accumulated. Danite, one more comment regarding your comments from a previous day. I am NOT overplaying Israeli Arab's second class status in Israel. I actually don't mention that often. But you should consider modifying your opinion on this. The existence of a communist party in Israel is great and it shows Arabs have more rights on paper than they do in any other Arab State. But the human spirit longs for equality and justice and a sense of belonging. This is why many Jews leave more comfortable lives to move to Israel. Noone can tolerate their national compatriots having higher status than themselves, anywhere...In Jordan, for instance, everyone is free to do as they like, except to criticize the King...the rules are equal for ALL, therefore, the country lacks the same tension and sense of injustice that exists in Israel. Peace- Ibrahim
