Perhaps Israel comes out to be a significant player in this Game Theory because the process of genuine reconciliation with your adversaries, comes in stages. It's a reciprocal dance - you meet my conditions, and I'll meet yours. The reason for the dance is that perpetrators of the use of violence and hatred need to come out with some dignity in order to save face to their communities and the international forum. First Israel proposed a Disengagment; then the Palestinians a Truce; then the Gaza withdrawal;then the Hamas election victory, then Israel's moderate government election victory, then Israel preconditions for talks, then Hamas officials agreeing to withdraw to 1967 borders, and now we're all waiting for the players to actually make it all happen in reality within the playing field! We've only been waiting 60 years! It looks hopeful indeed.
