well, the old man has just gone mad - only a few steps and months away from a plaestinian state, he forms a coalition with hamas and crushes all possibilities for europe & co. to accept such a government with it's aims of establishing a shariah-state, force all women under burkas and destroy israel. by the way, how naive to believe that hamas won't repeat it's coup d'etat but this time they'll get much more. Remembers me of Arrafat, when Barak offered him exactly what they demand today (Westbanl + East Jerusalem) and he rejected and pushed towards the second Intifada. Headshot.
