    I have no idea if this report is true - the statements of the Egyptian Govt should be taken with a grain of salt. But, if the PLO is belittled and despite its obvious attempt to meet Israel more than half way gets nil results for the Palestinians, if Hama is not given legitimacy when it win elections and is not recognised as a resistance group (don't forget that it has never advocated any act of violence outside Israel/Palestine) why should we be surprised if the vacuum is eventually filled by Al-Qaida? There will be no resolution of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict without including Hamas. At this point it is clear that Israel is happy enough with the status quo - the lid kept on the Palestinians, settlements expanding, the USA still holding Israel's hand etc - but things change. Military prowess will not guarantee security and unless it quickly changes course Israel will be more and more isolated. This is just the beginning of the international recognition of the suffering of the Palestinians and the legitimacy of their cause.
