    Truth, you have misread the ultimate intentions of Hamas, who plan and strive only for one Muslim State in all of Palestine. The maximum that they ever offered was a truce for a few yrs, intended to provide the time for re-arming and consolidating its intentions. This is unacceptable for Israel and not the wish of most of the Palestinian people. As for Weisgal's "formaldehyde", that was a humorous ploy for buying time, and not to avoid a solution forever. Both he and Sharon expected to have to deal with vigorous and time-consuming problems relating to removal of settlements from Palestinian territory. As for Israel today, I'm no chauvanist and am deeply disturbed and critical of the very heavy hand that it uses in self-defence against the Palestinians. As for the settlements, they are the bane of all our lives. These are immense problems, but there is a genuine desire and intention to solve them. Hamas is a spoke in the wheel of progress for Israelis and Palestinians alike.
