Acting PM is making a grave mistake by saying Isral and the West will ignore a government with Hamas, thereby making it irrelevant. ISrael already tried that with Arafat, and look how that turned out! No. Israel must go on the offesnive. It must keep the pressure on Hamas, keep it off balance. Israel must ensure that Hamas either changes completely (ie renounces all violence and incitement, recognises Israel, and negotiates in good faith) or be an international outcast and face its demise. BY ignoring Hamas, Israel, not the PA, will become irrelevant.
