I think you have started from a position of support for Israel come what may.
There are many like you but support for your position and support for Israel is dwindling.
I am not suggesting that Israel is suddenly going to change its ways and negotiate fairly with the Palestinians.. The prospect of a two state solution is gone...probably forever.
It is gone because the illegally occupied territories are now settled by hundreds of thousands of armed Zionist settlers and are covered by settler only roads and an apartheid wall. But the Palestinian people are not going to accept the small separate bantustan areas that apparently seem to be their future under Israeli rule. Bantustans that do not even have access to the outside world . Israel doesn't want a one state democratic state with guaranteed civil and human rights for all and looks set to continue it's pulverising of garza and it's brutal control of the West Bank for the years ahead.
So it's seems to be vicious attacks every few years and during the intervening periods more heavy controls and intimidation etc.
All this adds up to a ort of process without peace.
The Palestinian resistance won't accept this situation. In garza for example the Palestinian leaders say that with the choice of a quick death by bombing or a slow death by malnutrition or disease they may as well continue fighting.
The child killer Netanyahu thinks he is on a winner but Israel is heading into a militarised racist dead end...with friends like you mr baobab and some rich neo cons in America but with dwindling grassroots support across the world. Ivor
