Levy is asking for the impossible for the US to talk to Hamas because of the skeleton in its closet since its instigated but failed PA assault on Gaza in 2006. I don't see the US talking to Hamas without first admitting and apologizing for it. Israel has not been doing anything to Gaza that is not acceptable to the US. The American reaction to the Goldstone report was to be expected as what continues to be done in Afghanistan and Iraq is not any less horrible than what Israel did in Gaza; same MO, same colourful munitions.
