The article poses some interesting questions. The summary is that: at what point do you acknowledge an ex-terrorist group into the political process? It happened with the ANC (they bombed a chemical plant in Secunda where we used to live) And with Sinn Fein/IRA. Martin McGuiness is now part of the Stormont Assembly. If the path is not open for reconciliation and a shift away from violence with zero recognition/encouragement from the Israeli government then there is serious short-sightedness going on. A non-violent, united political movement is the way forward and I would expect to be accepted by the EU. Other peace-process models should be copied. But it also seems contradictory for Israel to want peace with Palestine but siege Gaza, and then propose punishments at the sign of reconciliation. I wish 2012 to be a more positive year for the region and it's peoples.
