    No--the thanks should go to ISRAEL! The country, people and leaders--who had the opportunity to deal with--and make peace with-- Abbas...instead chose Hamas! Israel/Israelis chose to drag their feet (the border); chose to play their usual games; chose to engage in peace sabotage; chose their "facts"/"actions on the ground" policies--with Abbas--and thereby helped put Hamas in office (even considering Fatah issues). With Arafat, Israel said, "it had no partner." With Abbas, Israel again said, "it had no partner." Now with Hamas, Israel CAN currently say "it has no partner." Israel has "no partner," BECAUSE IT WANTS "NO PARTNER!" It's obvious. Israel's rhetoric about "wanting peace"--has about as much credibility--for being a REAL "platform for wanting peace with the Palestinians"...as a dog saying it never has fleas. The Palestinians--gave you THEIR MOST MODERATE--and it wasn't enough for you. Nothing ever seems to be enough for you! Thanks a lot!
