Hamas Starting to Consider Talking with Israel?

Google News is carrying various reports that Hamas is considering beginning to tall with/about Israel. For example - Ha'aretz "Haniyeh: Hamas won't cave in to external economic pressures" and the Globe and Mail. I'll believe it when I see it.

Israeli Elections

In just a few hours, Israeli's will go to the polls and direct the country's path over the next few years. I hope that turnout is high, people consider all potential consquences of their vote and choose wisely.

May Israel's choices cause her to go from strength to strength.
