Howdy Rick; In spite of Mr. Danny Rubinstein's statement that "Abu Mazen will not be able to fulfill any agreement with Israel without an arrangement with Hamas", I agree with you that peace between Israel and the West Bank is now more possible than ever provided that Hamas can be confined to the Gaza Strip. Of course, any agreement would apply to the West Bank only and Hamastan would have to be dealt with later. Unfortunately, most people are still operating under the delusion that the Palestinian Territories remain one indivisible whole and it will take awhile for the realization to sink in that the Gaza Strip and the West Bank will never get back together again politically.
