This conflict, tragically, is a little more complex than you think. There was lots of intransigence and deception on the part of Yasir Arafat and Fatah during the Osle peace process years. Arafat not only did not accept Ehud Barak's Camp David offer, he did not even make a counter offer. Israel dismantled settlements in Gaza (I supported this) and what did we get? Rockets on innocent civilians. Why didnt Hamas take that territory and build a state?
