What's left of the Palestinian left is coming up with initiatives to solve the current crisis between Fateh and Hamas. The Democratic Front, the Popular Front, and the Palestinian National Initiative Party are offering plans to go beyond the current impasse. It's important that these initiatives insist that things in Gaza return to the status quo before the Hamas takeover. Not to do that means rewarding Hamas for using arms to grab power, something no one who remotely cares about the Palestinians should encourage.
