    It's not like hamas popped up from nowhere or took over the reins of power by force. They were ELECTED by a substabtial majority of the Pals, partly because they represent pals disillusion with "moderates" like Abbas, who after years of appeasement got them nothing but more settlements. hamas is indeed the face of pals resistance of the occupation and they DO HAVE the right to resist, since only resistance got them any progress at all towards a state. Now it's just a question of the tactics of resistance. Clearly hamas is moderating quite a bit, which is a POSITIVE development. Rejecting talks with Hamas is the same as rejecting the pals, to whom hamas symbolizes the injustice of the situation they find themselves in. To them the boycott merely serves to illustrate israel's bad intentions. Interestingly, even as they expect the Pal government to capitulate unconditionally, the homesh settlers apparently have a carte blanche. If you were a palestinian what message would you get?
