This is really big news and I'm quite surprised that there is little comment on it. Is it because people don't believe them? Is it because it it might help the region? In my view the announcement, after talks in Egypt, can only be a good thing for Palestinians and for Palestinians in Gaza. Palestinians need to be united and a United Palestine is in a better position to talk about a resolution to the conflict. Palestinians or Israelis are just people like everyone else they have the same dreams and aspirations as everyone else, however when people find themselves in conflict situations extreme thinking and goals are introduced. If there were meaningful talks that lead to a peace agreement (I know that involves concessions on both sides dealing with the settler issue etc etc) and there was peace, and I believe this has to be possible, then you would see a huge rise in the standards of living of all the peoples in Palestine and Israel. Do you believe Hamas are sincere, have they become weary and have no choice, will elections happen? Is this not a great thing for Palestine?
