Hamas is willing to go very far to avoid peace with Israel and make sure a Palestinian state doesn't come into existence. Even as far as making up with Fatah. But I think Abbas has not yet milked Israel for what it's worth. The key thing is to keep giving more to the West Bank and make sure conditions worsen in Gaza. That's the only way to play the two Palestinian parties off each other. Ultimately Abbas will realize that he passed the point of no return- that going back to terror means losing. Then the Palestinian state can appear in some part of the West Bank, conditions permitting. Gaza can join later once Haniyeh and his top 2000-3000 officers are dead. Also, Israel should resume its policy of targeted assassinations, but only after the November meeting. Abbas will then know what he is risking for reneging on his promises to Israel.
