as a start: still ambiguous--even as a de facto "reality check"--but "will remain as a state" sure beats "cannot remain as a state because we insist on wiping it off the face of the earth" so this guy is an improvement on his ally, Teheran's Ahmenewhatever. Yeah, yeah, there's a lot of parsing going on but for Meshal to come out with this (as opposed to Haniyeh whose been back and forth in and out of this territory) brings the conflict somewhat more into the realm of a non-existential war of attrition. Obviously, everything is up in the air: demands, tactics, strategies, self-definitions, image of the other, but inasmuch as peace is likely to be built "in the moment" (just as militias are assembled procedurally on an ad hoc basis using assets on the ground), if people on both sides of the barricades can back off from a posture assuming a necessary demeaning, delegitimation, and indeed, dissolution of the other side, there's space for positive light to get in.
