    Jeff, under any circumstances one should do the best that is attainable. My plan calls for a peace agreement with Abbas. With a peace agreement in hand, Abbas can call new elections, and my expectation is the peace party will win. Hamas won recently not because people became Islamic fundamentalists overnight, but because Fatah became corrupt, and also failed to deliver a good peace. Israel can then move to its agreed borders. On the other side you will have a government (Fatah, I assume) which is for peace, with elements of terrorists that are against it. Israel can build a wall on its borders. In this respect it will not be worse than now. But it will actually get much better. With the end of occupation, Israel can use harsher measure in retaliation, such as electricity cutoff. The population will turn against the terrorists if they persist. Also, the refugee problem will be solved (as per the peace agreement) with the refugees being settled around the world. No fuel for enmity
