A risk they're prepared to take
That's kind of how I see all these people who are so anxious for Israel to "give Hamas a chance" and take the first step, end the boycott, etc. Like, don't worry that these people continue to talk about liberating the entirety of "occupied Palestine", we're sure it'll turn out alright in the end.
Except, if they're wrong, nothing will happen to them. Just to Israel. Which makes a slight difference, I think.
