    I for once in a very long time agree with Gideon Levy, at least half way. We cannot make peace with a fragmented Palestinian leadership and without making peace with the Gazan "half" of the Palestinian equation. I fully agree. I think that in this respect Gideon has one eye fully open. On the other hand, where I believe Gideon has the other eye fully shut, is that talking to Hammas, negotiating with Hammas, sending them flowers, or whatever,will never bring us any closer to peace either. Hammas's central premise is to create an Islamic State on the whole territory of Israel, and once achieved, then continue on to the rest of the world. They have said it over and over and over,,, and over again. Perhaps one should start listening to what they are saying??? The best we can achieve with them is a transient Hudna, in which their self-declared purpose is to build their military capacity so that they continue the armed struggle. Sorry Gideon, please open your eyes!
