    Well, maybe we should return to that issue, IF hamas becomes political entity some day. Not before. Palestinians would have already had their state and almost everything that can rationally be imagined possible, if they wouldn't preferred that leverage of bombs. You seem to forget, that they work only as long as Israel thinks foreign relations (which are usually cold at least...) are important and worth saving. If situation changes radically, so that there is more and more bombings and foreign relations are in dead end, it is futile for palestinians or anyone else to even dream of having something. Barak was ready to end the conflict, but Arafat preferred on playing some g*d damn games with human lives, instead of making the neccessary compromise. After that there has been practically no trust and absolutely no REASON to trust palestinians. Israel has kept it's extremes at bay quite well, but as long as palestinians continue on their current path, no negotiations and no agreements will change the situation, or solve problems. No matter what is done, violence will stay, because palestinians won't put their extremes under control. Nobody is asking one to like the other, that would be utopia - control and order is the key to solution, not to forget compromises... It is also wishful thinking to assume that suicide bombers and terrorists act only because of their miserable lifes. They have their agenda, and most of them believe in destruction of Israel, one way or another. There are those who wish to deny that, like Khalid does, but frankly, they have absolutely nothing to back their claims up.
