We read here that the Americans and Saudis,both,are funding a new city in the West Bank.This is just the beginning and I would imagine a real sample project,possibly the first of many. On the other hand we are still talking about Hamas.Why? Really though the Palestinians are still somewhat enamored with Hamas,this love relationship is coming to an end.I think that the Americans and Saudis and even Israelis will help build a Palestine on the West Bank that will be something to behold and as they do the grip that Hamas has on the Palestinian imagination with drop like a stone. This IS the way to do it. The Palestinians will get their state and Hamas will be relegated to a bad dream.I would imagine some of the more diplomatic and moderate Hamas members will run and want to be part of this new country while others will slide into insurgency.
