"Surely, you must admit that the Walls do work, just like locking your house doors to keep out the bad guys" I've said several times before that I think the Wall/Fence is a good idea and has done wonders for Israeli security. My problem with it is that it shouldn't cut so deep through Palestinian West Bank land, thus cutting villages off from their farmland, which you know it does. "To show their good intentions, BOTH Hamas & Fatah MUST remove the portions of their Charters that call for the destruction of Israel" I have agreed and do agree with that. "Israel did remove some of the restrictions on Gaza, as a show of appreciation, Gaza instensified their rocket & mortar fire into Israel" How about this: lift the seige completely, and if so much as one rocket hits Israel afterwards, re-commence the seige. That would give the Gazans and Hamas a real chance at peace...??
