Israel should use this gesture from Hamas to directly engage them!

    Everyone knows about Hamas's actions of missile attacks, terrorism and brutality. Everyone knows about Hamas's charter calling for the destruction of Israel and the death f all Jews. It's well documented. However, usually the ones firing the guns are the ones that usually at the end sit down at the table and make peace. Right now Hamas is cracking down on Islamic Jihad and Hizbollah. These are acts that should not go unrecognized. The PLO/Fatah never cracked down on militias in Gaza when they contolled Gaza. Fatah/PLO is a paper-dragon, the only thing keeping them in charge of the WB is the IDF. Israel should sit down DIRECTLY with Hamas and negotiate peace. They must talk to the people in charge, and for better or worse that is Hamas. Israel can use this PR of Hamas cracking down on militias that are firing missiles at Israel and sell that to the Israeli right-wingers.

    Look time is not on Israel's side. Russia and China have never been on Israel's side, but European support is starting to fade. It won't be long before Eurotrash politicians start to realize they need to appeal to the large Muslim minority in order to get elected. US support is still very strong, but it won't last forever. The Obama/Clinton administration is going to put a lot of pressure on Israel and if Israel faults on any of the US demands, expect a backlash!

    GHook, your support for Israel is well documented and much appreciated on my end, however, I must respectfully disagree with you. Hamas arresting a bunch of punks firing missiles doesn't mean that they want to sit down and make peace with Israel.

    The best thing Hamas should do is ignore Israel and start building real infrastructure now that half of Gaza's buildings have been blown to bits. Use the billions in international money given to you to re-build Gaza. Get hi-speed internet, build schools, cafes and restaraunts... create JOBS. Let one year go by without one rocket being fired from Gaza - double your GDP, hell triple it. Build farms and grow vegetables and fruits that you can export to the West Bank and Egypt.

    Until Hamas does this, they're just a gang holding an area of land hostage.

    Golda Meier would have disagreed with you. She'd have said "who are you going to talk to; your friends?"

    and yes, Hamas SHOULD be building infrastructure, but that isn't what he was referring to, I think. And talking to them doesn't mean things change ... it just means they're talking. No harm and can only do good. IMO.

    Is Hamas the best peace partner? No, I rather have the Israelis dealing with the Quakers. Israel has the cards that have been dealt! Look Israel is surrounded by a few hundred million Arabs. All these Arab countries are catching up in military technology and have larger armies! Again Russia and China have never been Israel's friend, Europe is quickly turning on Israel and its only time before America turns also.

    What the hell are you talking about? Did you even read the thread title? Is this your generic response to everything that's said in an Israel discussion? "Spill more blood. Israel bad." You're like a robot.

    given the predictable team jerseys posting thus far you really should tell me another joke about which of us is a robot. Hell, just get your fucking Final Solution over with already, pussy.

    who are you talking to? Two of us said negotiate with Hamas.

    Other than being your usual vile self, I'm not sure what you're referring to.

    Soggy's a white man (I think) so he thinks Jews can't do anything without a white man's help. I guess that's why he's here telling y'all what to think.

    must be... though I'm thinking he didn't read what was written and just figured he'd do some more of his patented jew-bashing dance.
