So far they don't have a unified government, didn't exist until recently...why the Palestinians are never mentioned in UN Res. 242...because nobody recognized an independent Arab people call Palestinians. It's why you can't name the Pal president before Arafat, none existed. In the WB they flew the Jordanian flag and in Gaza they flew the Egyptian flag and if you went into the history books prior to the 1960's, there was no such thing as a Palestinian flag. Why do think that is? Because there was never was a country, doesn't that make sense. So now they are here and have to be "coaxed" into direct talks? Why? I thought they wanted a country? But without a unified Government and Hamas saying it will not honor any peace agreements I don't see how it's possible?
