    Israel should not take so long as England did to understand this. You make peace by talking to your enemies, not your friends. And deal made with Fatah, by ignoring Hamas policial mandate (the were democratically elected) and those who voted for them (a majority, even in the West Bank) will fail miserably just as the same types of attempts failed in Ireland.
