    - & thanks for keeping to the 2-states option & not advocating some other, completely unreal utopia. but i think you might have to delve a little bit deeper into the ME abyss, in order to actually say something new & point to a concrete way of untying the knots. could you please at least tell us if, within the seventh future of your story, hamas ever abandoned their dream of an end to the state of israel (/did they just forget about it as the golden age was taking hold?)? & on what concrete grounds did fatah & hamas manage to reconcile? & who persuaded the setlers (not the political leaders in jerusalem & tel aviv) to give up on their dream? was there /wasn't there an internal israeli civil war? was the pal. ROR ever given up? a mutual defense-pact? wow! if only such a thing could ever be.. you see, these are among the real, concrete hurdles standing in the way of a negotiated peace. noone has as of yet found a credible answer to how to overcome them & they can't just be bulldozed away either. thank you, margaret, that was a nice try. consulting w/amos oz might help (meant seriously, not sarcastically, btw)..
