    "In the past, the Israelis tended to target secular moderates more so than militant Islamiscists, back in the early days of the Israeli Iron Fist Occupation Policies in the late 70`s-80`s." - Ibrahim That was because Begin saw Hamas as a means of undermining the PLO. Just as the US supported fundamentalist militants in hopes of provoking revolution in the southern Soviet Union. "However, this developement is much needed. A party which brings technical people into its ranks, competent people who can build institutions even under the duress of the ongoing Israeli seige." - Ibrahim True, it could be a good thing. Yet we know Hamas will oppose it, and I suspect that Fatah is less than convinced it needs to give up power. "Unless the Israelis have truely changed and given up the idea of Greater Israel (still unclear), a secular moderate group will be targetted and discredited by Israel." - Ibrahim Then everyone is against them.
