    I believe that Netanayhu should, with the compelling words of Ehud Barak, strive for a reconfiguration of the current conflict, in order to meet the 2 year proposed time-line for Palestinian statehood. It should be achieved by rewarding Al-Fatah, for its modernist, pro-West, pro-Peace, pro-2-State-Solution tendencies, insofar as abating settlement construction in the West Bank, and returning these lands to the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas should be rewarded for the relative stability he has brought to the West Bank, and it should not be an either-or policy on the Israeli part in relation to the cessation of tensions between Gaza and the West Bank in relation to Israel. It is Hamas in Gaza, where the final settlement, Gush-Katif, was evacuated in 2005, that should be contained militarily until such time as either a Peace Deal is signed or a new more moderate faction is formed to the same effect. The current policy of either-or only perpetuates conflict.
