in response to reader comment: Hamas vs. the PLO: part of the Civil War

It seems to me that the situation in Palestine and Israel is an unresolvable one if both sides remain unwilling to change their positions. Both sides want the whole amount of one piece of land. This will not work ever; it's like trying to make 1 divided by 2 equal one. The only possible end to this is one of two scenarios. One race wipes the other out completely, or the two some how manage to berry the hatchet and form a single united government.

That's my two cents anyway
