This is a PIVOTAL moment--with it being possible for things going either way. The Palestinians at this point can become disillusioned with Hamas, especially the fact that outside Hamas will go over Gaza Hamas...& create problems on the ground for the Palestinians...& prevent them from having their state & E. Jerusalem. In some ways the Palestinians know that peace is closer than ever/though at times it seems far. They also know that this latest thing from Hamas...& if these kinds of actions continue from Hamas...will jeopardize their goal of having a state & E. Jerusalem. What the Palestinians (Abbas, moderates, etc.), the International Community & ISRAEL need to do...is MOVE FORWARD/MAKE PEACE...DESPITE Hamas, etc. Also-- The International Community needs to ASSURE THE PALESTINIANS, that they will help them to get rid of the hired/paid peace saboteurs/thugs operating in Palestine (not excluding the peace saboteurs/thugs operating in Israel). Peace IS POSSIBLE!
