    Stephen, Unfortunately, I think yu are right..Hamas does not want peace WITH Israel. They want Israel. Period. Of course, what will they gain? Let's see.. IF they managed to *push the Jews into the sea* they would have what? 1. Destroyed aquifers within 5 years (They are doing a good job of destroying them now and with no aquifers, a MAJOR water shortage) 2. No economy/shattered (again, they've done well enough in bringing ruin and destruction on their economy...from a rapidly growing, flourishing economy to a decimated economy) 3. They will need to import 50% of their food (This is what they were importing in 48 due to mismanagement/bad stewardship of the land, an, with #1 taken into account, they will not have enough water for irrigation needs) So. What would Hamas/Palestinians gain? land turned back 100 years. ALL because they just do no get it. They don't get that they could have partnered with Jews in improving the land and economies for all. They CHOSE to ignore this FACT.
