    Israel didn't speak with the PLO when it was supreme among the Palestinians and when it was ready, it got Hamas; now Israel won't speak with Hamas (about a Hudna) and rest assured, it will soon have to deal with Al-Qaida and/or World Jihad. On the other side of the coin, the Palestinians didn't want to speak with the Labor Party when it was supreme in Israeli politics, and they got the Likud; now they don't want to speak to the Likud and they will likely get Liberman or even worse. The level of statesmenship and foresight on both sides is abysmal. Both come to agreements with has-beens after years of dithering and get worthless arrangements. I get no joy in saying so, but both sides deserve the leadership they have.
