Why can't the Hamas leaders just say:"it's time to sit down,talk and work out a comprimise"? Why is everything that's quoted says:"the US forced". What kind of leaders do they have? Aren't a government and its officials supposed to stand up and speak for the good of the people? Are they not supposed to ensure that their citizens have clean water,adequate shelter,medical care,enough to eat,someone to help them when they are old,sick and feeble,to educate the children,to ensure women's rights and health issues? I've yet to hear this. All I've heard is how they think we, Israeli's are "bad and need to be destroyed". Well then let's remind them,the next time they use a cell phone,it was invented in Israel Or the next time,they vaccinate their child,Dr. Salk a Jewish doctor invented it. But more importantly let us remember the lessons we are teaching the children of the world. Let us not be examples for what is wrong in the world,but for the good and the tolerance. And let it begin NOW.
