This nonsense of not talking to Hamas - Haaretz - Israel News: "There's no need to be a great prophet to predict that talking with Hamas will be difficult and maybe even barren. One can guess that without intelligence and defense stalwarts who prepared us, as we remember, for Hamas' failure in the Palestinian elections. Nor was there any surprise about the number of standing ovations received by the prime minister when, in his speech to the U.S. Congress, he lashed out at those terror plotters. It was a well-crafted speech polished by the trusty hands of Eli Wiesel. But the entire Israeli move toward Hamas reeks of banality, lack of sophistication, and paralyzed thought, and is grimly reminiscent of past lessons. "
