    Yes and No. Sharon said that Final Status talks would not begin until terror is neutralized. No problem here with that. The Orange Likud high-jacked that to mean NOTHING begins until the PA starts shooting those Israel says are bad guys. Hamas does not want to lay down weapons and say ok Orange Israel have your way with us, build steril roads, build more settlement colonies and kill us at whim. The resistance factions know a state cannot emerge so long as independant militias exist. Hence, Consolidation in which all the factions work out the details of disbanding all independant militias in the 2nd PLC is the choosen path. It is a sound plan and does get the Palestinians to One Government with One Gun without having to kill each other off for basically Orange Israel's entertainment. The incursions are a real problem. The 800 or so politicos were not "suspected militants" and the resistance factions want their right to defend theselves from those incursions. Since February, there has been no attack without provocation. With Amman in mind, renouncing true terrorism is not that big a step for Hamas but would be a giant leap towards peace. One speaks of undoing one knott at a time in the ball of knotts that is the Israeli/Palestinian situation. I am of the mind that renouncing true terrorism is the next knott to be undone.
