    Hamas came into being in the early 1980's with Israeli connivance as a counterweight to the PLO under the divide and rule strategy. The key word here is 'rule'. Now most Israelis from Sharon/Olmert down know that the occupation and seeding of the West Bank with religious fanatics has been a disaster. The attempt to seed Gaza with large numbers of fanatics was also a numerical failure, so a pullout was authorised. Will an Israeli government find the will to hand over the West Bank landmass, not the torture of a thousand cuts offered by Barak, and sovereignty of Arab East Jerusalem? Will Hamas now require to be taken out of the equation one way or another, or will it come to the table? The explosive TV documentary by Chaim Yavin watched by three million Israelis on channel 2 last year,'In the Land of the Settlers' spells this out better than anything I can contribute. It is now available with English subtitles. A 'must see'.
