    "No one can make peace from a position of weakness." - Dwight Eisenhower "Hamas is moderating as we write (and as some of us expected would be the result of their participation in the elections). But to be realistic, they are NOT going to disarm before peace is achieved, or else they lose any means of pressuring Israel into peace concessions." - Ben Gurion The fact that Hammas, which need not, is trying to form a national unity government says much. The old exiles may not like it, but the young turks in Palestine are clearly intent upon ruling. As events of the last 5 years have shown, to rule effectively they must suppress attacks on Israel and see attacks by Israel reduced as well. All good and fine they offer hudna - the offer must be made - but they must go farther than just a truce, though a truce is better than fighting. I fear that the Abramoff scandal and sinking Bush ratings here in the US are about to force tensions in the middle east to record new levels.
