    Right to self-determination is not only dependent on the formal presence of state structures. People who have been living for centuries on their land but have been ruled and colonized by foreign powers must be given the right to organize themselves and decide for themselves over the establishment of their state. Universal human rights grant peiople these rights. Now, Balfour, Sykes-Picot, the UN-partition resolutio, Israeli settlement policy - can you see any involvement of the Palestinian people in such dictates from outside? The Palestinian stance is that there are plenty of isues to talk about (refugees, borders, Jerusalem), but who would listen to them and support them in their rightful claims.One does not have to be a supporter of Hamas, to understand that also the latest Arab League peace plan may not have the full endorsement from all the Palestinians. To what extent Hamas represents Palestinian views is of course an issue, but had earlier peace efforts been more successful and received required support rather than an ever faster growing settlement enterprise, Hamas would never have become what it is today. The time is overdue to listen to the Palestinians and to support their rightfull demand for self-determination and freedom.
