Paul, don't see this through western eyes. Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. They are quite open about it and because they are religously based there can be no compromise in their eyes. Let me make it simple. Israel can do whatever it wants, the fact is that HAMAS DOES NOT WANT TO TALK, THEY WILL NOT COMPROMISE. It would be a repudiation of Islam in their mind. It really is just that simple.
