It is clear that both sides have moved as far as they can publicly. Israel has started very serious disengagement, and Hamas have proposed long term truce without recognition and renouncing terror. The public positions are incompatible, but still provide a basis to move forward to a new dialectic, as a basis for eventual mutual existence side by side as far as is practically possible even if not politically or even theologically expedient under current interpretation. There should be no illusions however that Israel can leave un-answered military operations against its territory or citizens by individuals or groups. However it can still come to an equilibrium that allows progressing the political process that may ultimately lead to a better status quo for both peoples. This may not be an immediate or ideal vision, but a pragmatic position. Neither side can expect one-way traffic, there will have to be responsible give and take on both sides to work.
