When you are posting a intellectual experimental discussion you must be prepared to defend your position without any sarcasm or hysteria otherwise don't post. SO HERE GOES:You have no idea the way i think so you don;t have a right to call me on that.The reality as I see it The Arabs will never accept a Jewish state whether in pre 1967 Borders(Been There Saw That Done that)The Arabs are not just Hamas they are Al qaida, Jihad. Al Aqsa, Fatah and a myriad of other organizations. So It is very black and white. Focusing on Hamas is a big mistake in thinking. And it we want to use the word absolutism you have to relate it to the Palestinian authority as well. Israel has evolved ions ago from Tribalism(Tribes) unless you consider the differenses between Sephardim and ashkenazim as being Tribalism ( I don't believe that this palys any part in your equation) The Neverlanders are still tribal in thinking because they are composed of various clans (The same is valid in Jordan,Syria, Iraq etc.)and not enough time has elapsed for these clans to jell into a Nation.Each clan has a chief who in turn has no alliegiance to any other.If this is what you call Tribalism than I agree. A mature Nation cannot make any deals with tribal chiefs that are not answerable to a Central authority. Afghanistan and Iraq fall into that category and only a Stron Dictator can keep them in Line, but for how long is an open question. Afghanistan has never in its history had a stable government. Please enlighten me on my twisted logic. Me thinks that you are trying to come up with solutions that are not there.
