What the Quartet is insisting is that Hamas recognise Israel, accept Israel's theft of land and promise not to resist any further acts of land theft and brutality. Total surrender to Israel, in fact, and in return for what? The lifting of the criminal starvation blockade, imposed by America and Israel as a punishment for them voting the "wrong" way in their election, and some vague suggestion that peace talks might take place at some point in the future, agenda unknown. The Quartet will, of course, be disappointed.
