I have to say that the statement by Meshal is not really what Israel is asking for. I think more than to recognize the fact that Israel exists - which not even a moron could dispute - there needs to be a statement that Israeli people have the right to live in security. But at the same time, it's a start. And I think a more positive reaction might lead the way in a positive direction. To dismiss it outright and say that one doesn't care WHAT Meshal says is certainly not the best way to react.
