Arafat recognized Israel, humiliated himself, and repressed his own people to appease sucessive Israel government. And he got nothing in return, only more humiliation. Then eventually, they killed by poisoning him. Abbas gave Israel everything it wanted. He even voiced his pain at the holocaust, as if the Palestinians were responsible for it,and he got nothing, and Tzibi Livni called him irrelevant. And now they want Hamas to do the same thing..and in return for nothing. But Hamas won't. It would be stupid and follish if it did. Israel doesn't want peace, period. Israel doesn't want equal parterns. It wants only "non-partners' to justify its wanton settlement expansion.
