for example the deal everyone talks about being rejected by arafat would have allowed israel to control water rights for the west bank, which is unacceptable in an arid land...

we don't know what a reasonable deal would do in terms of hamas losing popular support because no such deal has ever been offered...

we don't have to "turn them against" hamas, we only need for them to vote them out...

i'm not saying that such an offer would necessarily work, but whatever has been tried for the last 60 some years hasn't worked yetl...

maybe a new approach might yield the results that most israelis and palestinians want, which is peace and freedom...
