"A National Unity Government with a compromise platform along the lines of Mecca might have been achieved soon after the election," wrote de Soto, "had the U.S. not led the Quartet to set impossible demands..." Impossible demands such as to acknowledge Israel's right to exist and to respect signed agreements such as Oslo, the very agreement de Soto fears will go down the drain (he hasn't noticed that it already did). De Soto made his remarks on the day Hamas brutally took over, just as the Nazis did after being elected into the German Parliament. I guess de Soto believes WWII could have been avoided if only Mr. Chamberlain had tried more.
