That's what I love, a self flagellating Israeli Jew. Hamas talks of compromise. Nonsense! They play the stage game. Stage 1 withdrawal to the 67 borders. Stage 2 1948 borders. Stage 3 all of Israel becomes part of an Islamic Palestine. Take your head out of the sand Gideon. These people mean to destroy the State of Israel in stages. Have even the "moderate" Palestinian elements given up on "their right to return to all of Palestine?" You are lucky to have a Bush Administration who understands the power dynamics in the area. When the Democrats get control of the Presidency in 2008 it will be quite different. They will negotiate with a "moderate" sounding Hamas and israel could be in real danger. Count your blessings today for tomorrow could be quite different!
