    Let's assume you are right and all participants in Annapolis were wrong - by their participation - to side with Abbas's "peace". Do you, Zvi, really know what the Palestinians want? How many are on the side of Hamas and how many with Abbas? If yes, HOW MANY? Do you know their feelings after Hamas viciously killed their "brothers"? WHAT ARE THEIR FEELINGS? How exactly is a reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas to take place except Abbas going hat in hand and on his knees to Hannyeh who would show generosity?? And about your "The Palestinian Authority would maintain one army and one system of law": whose army would that be and what system of law would reign? Eh? Obviously Hamas ans Sharia, decided by force. Are you sure that the majority of Palestinians relish such system?
