Livni, Barak: Whatever happens, Hamas will be responsible (JPOST.COM, 2/24/08)

Israel will not intervene in any demonstrations that take place in the Gaza Strip, but should those demonstrations spill into Israeli territory, Hamas would be responsible for the repercussions, a joint statement issued by Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday. [...]

Palestinian officials on Sunday announced that they intend to protest the ongoing economic sanctions and blockade of the Gaza Strip on Monday morning by forming a human chain which will span from the Rafah Crossing in southern Gaza, to the Erez Crossing in the north.

Palestinian violence has always played into Israeli hands. Their greater weapon is Israel's democratic ideals and fundamental decency. Ariel Sharon was trying to force a state on them before they deployed those weapons.
