    Think for a moment, Screwdriver. Any country who is already recognized by the world doesn't have any type of obligation to recognize any and every other group that happens to want similar recognition... especially one who is a self-avowed enemy. That is not hypocrisy. It's common sense. FYI... the Palestinians still don't recognize Israel as a legitimate country. So why should or would Israel recognize them, thereby giving an avowed enemy more power and clout?

    To Casual Observer... It's never a bad bet to go with a horse who has the United States as a strong stablemate. We're strong and committed allies. I'd take that bet anytime. And why facilitate in any way someone whose sworn objective is to destroy you? That would make no sense.

    Anyone who objectively follows the Palestine's (and particularly Hamas) actions over the years knows without question that obtaining a peaceful resolution with Israel is not it's top priority. But rather, it's to abolish Israel... which has been it's admitted and stated object for many centuries. It's ongoing indiscriminate small missile bombing of Israel civilian areas is quite indicative and stands as proof.

    It was going to happen and Israel should have been at the table as a facilitator. Israels intransigence has left them, not the Palestinians, as the odd man out. The ultra orthodox carry the balance of power in Israel and they have bet on the wrong horse.

    Israel is recognized by the entire world but won't recognize Palestine.

    Hypocrisy at it's finest.

    Palestinians can never rely on a peaceful and legal defense of their country until they are LEGALLY recognized in world courts. Duh. And people expect them to handle their grievances peacefully when they CAN'T legally do so in court.
