Majority of Israelis back talks with Hamas


www.haaretz.com

According to the findings, Israelis are fed up with seven years of Qassam rockets falling on Sderot and the communities near Gaza, as well as the fact that Shalit has been held captive for more than a year and a half.

An increasing number of public figures, including senior officers in the Israel Defense Forces' reserves, have expressed similar positions on talks with Hamas.

It now appears that this opinion is gaining traction in the wider public, which until recently vehemently rejected such negotiations.

For me this is the only way forward for both sides. Israel needs to take serious steps at recognising Palastine as a seperate nation and support it's growth, including lifting the hateful economic embargo. And at the same time Hamas needs to renounce violence and release the Israeli soldier it is holding.

The situation in Gaza right now is untenable. Dozens of Innocent civilians being blown apart in the response to rocket attacks which have cause only a tiny proportion in comparion. A full scale invasion now looks a certinty. What will this acheive? hundreds of innocent civilians dead compared too many less militants, and as soon as the IDF retreat, if, the IDF retreat the same cycle will reappear as Hamas are requipped by their allies.

They must talk! The next president of the U.S along with the EU need to force Israels hand on this.

The fear being felt in Gaza is echoed by this reporter in the area. www.counterpunch.com...
