Horton hears a Hoo

When Prime Minister Netanyahu sits down for dinner with President Obama, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen, and other assorted dignitaries on Wednesday night, there's going to be a huge elephant sitting in the room. That elephant is Hamas, whose rule over Gaza and presence in Judea and Samaria the parties would rather forget. Hamas made its voice heard on Friday. It was a threatening voice.
On the eve of talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in Washington this week, Hamas held a rally in Gaza on Friday, in which speakers threatened to “choke” the PA if it agreed to any compromise on Arab control of Jerusalem. Any compromise on the full return of descendants of Arabs who fled Israel in 1948 to return to their original homes would “not be accepted by the Palestinian people,” speakers said.

Speakers at the rally promised that the “deciding battle” against Israel would take place soon. “This is not just a statement for the press,” the speakers said.
What could go wrong?

Yup. Every analysis of the "peace process" pretends Hamas is not a problem. And many in Fatah, the dominant faction behind the PA, share its view on the desirability of Israel's demise. How realistic is it to talk of peace with a man who does not even represent half of the people for whom he speaks and whose legal term of office expired nearly a year ago? Abu Bluff might be to sign something but his chances of making good on it are slim to none.
