    Israel need REAL recognition more than it needs theoretical 'recognition.' One single agreement with Hamas over the future of the region would be a REAL recognition. Who gives a damn if someone refuses to 'theoretically' recognize Israel if in FACT they have? "Acts speak louder than words" - President Theodore Roosevelt, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize Lets get real folks. I don't give a damn what someone's 'charter' or 'undersecretary of which and what' says. What IS important is what folks DO. "Charters" are not reality, they are positions stated for political purposes. What people DO is important, the theoretical crap will follow. Eventually, people will even forget the crap existed.
