    Abbas and Haniyeh have always stuck to their strategy of offering Israel nothing but making it seem like they are offering it something. Then all they have to do is sit back and let the leftists start pressuring Israel into accepting the generous offer. It is the leftist's job to take the empty offer and make it sound like a once-in-a-generation deal and that all is lost if it is not accepted. The trick is to get the moderates and the right-of- center crowd to begin to question their own sanity and to begin to see something where there actually is nothing. Arafat was a master of this technique; his two counterparts seem to be having problems implementing this ruse. Only time will tell if this old tried-and-true rusty hocus pocus act will work again. Meanwhile, the leftists are busy with their part of the task.
