    i am confident that the Israelis will soon be electing a centrist government capable of responding and dealing appropriately with Hamas. I think both sides have more than paid their dues in bloodshed. When Israel defeated the Arabs in '67 and chose to occupy the west bank they effectively created the possibility of a Palestinian nation. Whether or not there was a Palestinian people before Israel is irrelevant, there is most certainly a Palestinian people today. We can choose to hate. We can choose to assume that there is only our point of view, or we can see if it is possible to deal. Posters like Khalil have little to contribute to this dialog, but Israel will not have to deal with Khalil. Both sides have their extremists -- it may even be said that the Palestinians created the Israeli extremists. And no, I do not believe the situation is symmetrical by any means. I am simply saying that both sides have no logical choice but to negotiate.
