"Israel could sign tomorrow an [cease-fire] agreement with [Hamas]. It would be violated the next day." (Shalom Freedman) What a moronic point to make. Let us say S. Freedman is right. What damage would that do to us? We would be back to exactly the same situation we are in today. And so will be Hamas. Funny, the Egyptians and the Jordanians do seem to honor agreements. Perhaps the Palestinians are a special kind of Arabs. But wait, have'nt we said that there is no Palestinian people, just invaders and illegitimate squatters?
