While I can understand how the 1st Intifada colored the toddler years of Hamastan's new leaders - there were other chapters. In 1994 the Olso accords were signed. Palestinian Israeli cooperation groups were formed. People were talking. The process of peace was beginning. The men shooting machine guns into the air have lived through both realitys. They have chosen violence. They have also chosen to preach and teach and lead violently by example. I still have to believe that in the hopelessness that surrounds them are a few hiding in their homes who remember what life was like under olso. There must be those left on the Palestinian side who still dare to hope. I wonder how many are left on the Israeli side, and if our voices are loud enough to drown out the gunfire?
