    You have already agreed that the mere and simple existence of Israel is the problem.

    the existence of Israel is not THE factor that continues this conflict
    It is, according to those that fight Israel.

    Military action has failed.
    Arabs have tried it.
    Israel has tried it.
    Palestinians have tried it and so has Extremists.

    Diplomacy is the only way this conflict will be resolved.

    Even if it won't work, what harm is there in trying it? As the saying goes "You never really know until you give it a try".

    Isolation hasn't worked, that much is clear. What harm can there be in simply communicating with Hamas? It's not like it can really get much worse than it already is. Isolating them has been an abysmal failure, to say the least.

    And the evidence suggests that communicating HAS lowered rocket attacks. During a few months of the truce, very few rockets were fired comparitively. If anything, that shows that some degree of diplomacy is in order.

    Hamas and Hezbollah do also talk about what i just stated. The illegal building, the starvation/blocking aid
    I'll say it again, Israel's existence is not the factor to continue this

    While I don't think Obama himself should grace Hamas leaders with his presence, I have no problems with him sending his diplomats over there, so long as it is known that the acceptance of Israels right to exist is emphasized as a starting point of negotiations, not the end goal of them. Clinton was close to sealing a deal, but Arafat ultimatley screwed the pooch on that. Prehaps using Clintons prior proposal, Obama can make a few minor adjustments and seal the deal. Obama reminds me of a good business consultant, rather than a CEO.

    Hamas disagrees. Openly.
    As does Hizboolah. Openly.
