    Wow, these are really stunning statements, considering they came from a US general. Unfortunately, he is drinking the Koolaid on this one, buying a theory sold by so-called "moderate" arab states. These countries have their own interests in resolving the crisis, most importantly, tamping down extremists who threaten their governments. The reality is, however, that Islamic extremism and its views towards the West are not based on Israel. At best, it is just another one of their causes, but resolving it will by no means change much. Hamas and other extremists' views are based on religion, not nationalism. Hence, they refuse to relenquish terrorism - all is fair in a "holy" war, and will not lay down their arms for political legitimacy. Nasrallah will not go away, regardless of what Israel agrees to. Let's be real here - the Arab/west conflict is based on religion and the feelings of suppression shared across the Middle East, feelings that are not by any means unique to Gaza.
