  1. I am not sure they would have. After all, this way they can continue the conflict against Israel (which is what defines both Hamas and the PLO), while not being directly responsible (the whole ‘plausible deniability’ thing.) It also helps them to raise money from their more wealthy brethren.
    I am of the opinion that the Arab world could have stopped this conflict any time that they wanted – but they wanted it to continue, since with an external enemy to focus on, the people wouldn’t be so likely to look at the mess the rulers have made of their own countries. Now, they are too much involved to back down without losing face (sort of like the Argentinians as the RN was steaming to the Falklands/Malvinas with a whole lotta whoop-ass to deliver), but they are just as scared to let it go any farther forward (’cause when the IDF delivers their own shipments of whoop-ass, the Arabs are gonna lose, and that doesn’t look to good either.)
