    "If they put down their arms and stop attacking Israel both sides would be at peace." no darling, that is exactly the problem. Hamas can put down their arms but there still wouldn't be peace, there only would be peace for Israel.the occupation, the siege of Gaza and the oppression of the Pals would continue.the Israeli government and large parts of the population are still not ready to give up their hold on the West Bank.In "peaceful" phases,the Pals continue to suffer from violence, at the checkpoints,during the nightly incursions by the IDF, from the settlers, administrative detentions, etc, but yes Israel would be in peace to continue their land grab and avoid to implement a solution aka the 2-state solution. Sure there shouldn't be violence from the Pal side,but there also should be a common understanding in the Israeli society(& a broad movement) to give up very soon the occupation and the land stolen since 1967.peace is the consequence of negotiations, not its precondition.
