    Nadav, you seem to completely neglect the occupation as a factor in all of this. If you go back to a few yrs ago, you will see that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians supported a two state solution. Ther PLO recognised Israel in 1993. Abbas is eagre to enter into final status negotiations with Israel. Are you implying Abbas is going to negotiate with an entity he does not exist. As for Hamas, Israel jhad a great deal to do with its ascendency and you cannot deny that as a factor, combined with internal corruption. Hamas and the rejjectionists assumed the 37% or 40some% they did because palestinians saw no movement from Israel to end the occupation and that Israel was continuing to expand the colonies, which continued at a furious pace while Barak was talking with Arafat. Israel has consistently set up the deck so it can say it has no partner and all the while continue its colonisation enterprise making "Palestine" look like a mouse eaten piece of Swiss cheese.
