    To all Israelis who are objecting to the Hamas offer, I would recommend you look beyond your hatred of Palestinians, and consider this deal seriously! I am a Palestinian supporter of peace. Firstly why should Hamas recognise Israels right to exist when Israel does not recognise the Palestinians right to freedom, and do not recognise the state of Palestine which existed long before Israel? And why should we Palestinians who are under occupation not dictate the conditions for peace, as this war began with the creation of the state of Israel and the Zionist movement? A 50-60 year truce will see 2 new generations of Palestinians, living alongside Israelis. Palestinians and Jews have more in common than they do differences. Thus a truce like this would lay the foundations for peace and trust among both our people. Do you Israelis really believe that we Palestinians enjoy living in the Ghettos Israels occupation created for us? we want only freedom for once!

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
