Well, I wanted to bring this issue into discussion becouse i think it has great importance. since most of us are usually more optimists then the average person i thought we might come up with new ideas here. My primary thoughts is that Israel shoulde'nt avoid Hamas and instead should start working with it's represanatives first on humanitary issues in Gaza. Once a connection is established maybe we can even start talking wirh their leaders about security issues and if that goes well we might even get to political issues and start negotiating for peace. I think that by choosing that path we might distant Hamas from Iran which is a very important goal since Iran is an obstacle to the peace proccess. I personally think that Hamas might deliver on a peace treaty better than Fatah and that is why it's so important that we atleast try talking to them. Looking forward to reading your opinions.
