No denial that Palestinian are transitioning into statehood with the good and bad sides of it. If it took this much to get 15% of historical Palestine in 15 years, then Palestinians with all their differences think they are on the right track. Who thought in 1982 when the PLO was crushed in Lebanon that in 2006 Israel would be talking about a unilateral withdrawal. Who thought a year ago that Hamas will be forming an army under the eyes of the entire world. Look at what Hizbullah has done in Lebanon ... is Hamas any different. Later in the 1980s Israel was loosing the demographic war .... what kind of war is brewing now? It is time that both sides, despite the hurdles, work together. Hamas has been acting civilized since it gained power .... Israel should take advantage of this situation and stop playing the victim game.
