    Trying to force a peace agreement with the P's is like making a plan for a serial killer in hopes he will stop. In case anyone hasn't figured it out yet, the Palestinian leadership (Fatah or Hamas, take your pick) does not want peace or a Palestinian state. Peace with Israel is not on their agenda. A state would mean that the attacks they would make on israel after the P state is formed would then be an act of war, and full retaliation would be in order. The P "leadership" would get wiped out and/or lose their power. They have a good thing going now. They get plenty of money from the left and the other bleeding hearts who only care about being able to say "Well, we tried". If the P's really wanted peace, all they have toi do is stop the attacks. If they want a state, all they have to do is stop the attacks. They are not stopping, therefore they want neither peace nor a state. The only thing they understand is enough force to make them concede defeat.
