      What we should do is:

      1. keep posting informative diaries about the conflict, because the US media omits crucial facts and mostly ignores the Palestinians' grievances
      1. focus on the things most of us agree the US should do, such as talking to Hamas by whatever means it can or will do so

        Do you really believe that Hamas ever will accept peace (rather than a mere lull in which to regroup and rearm) with a non-Muslim state?

          That is a strategic truce which goes back to the days of Mohammed.  It is intended for the purpose of regrouping and continuing the battle in the future when the advantages of one's enemy have been mitigated either by their weakening or your own renewed strength.

          But this might only be true if we are to take them at their word.
