same question from the israeli perspective: whats the point of negotiating with PA, which has no mandate, and represents half the Pals? What good can an agreement be if it will only be binding on the PA and not Hamas? "They" want to negotiate but elect Hamas that rejects Israel's existence. The Pals haven't showed the willingness or ability to take the peaceful route. Israel, at least, has shown that it is willing/capable of evacuating (ie, Sinai, lebanon, gaza). the Pals haven't made any REAL step to demonstrate it has the cultural/political will for this. so Pal Brit, WHAT IS the point?
