    Bibi seems to be sleeping. He is already refusing negotiations with Abbas even without Hamas in the government. I think he's being stupid to say that because he just looks like the little spoiled baby who wants to invent any excuses to avoid doing what he should do that is peace. His statement also reminds us of what has happened 4 or 5 years ago when Hamas won the elections. Israel simply rejected Hamas and tried to impose its power to override the power of the people. Gaza war, the siege, the killing, etc..is all Israel's fault because they simply rejected democratic Palestinian elections. Since Hamas and Fatah are making good progress in their talks for conciliation and Hamas is likely to join the PLO and the PA: are we going to witness a new war by Israel against, this time, both the westbank and Gaza? How would the region react? and what would the world do about it? My firm belief is that Bibi and Liberman are not interested in peace. period. I also don't think that they will be "extra" arrogant and decide to launch a war like the recent war. They, I believe, realize well what happens in the region. People are revolts now. Their governments are volatile. Would Israel does something bad; I am not sure. I hope they dont and I hope that both Bibi and Liberman will be out soon and there will be a "chance" for peace!
