    "i think you`ll find that rates of death by gunfire, murder, assassination, disease, malnutrition and the like are considerably higher in the wb and gaza than in israel" leaves reality wanting. First, you would need to compare Gaza and the WB in '93, when the PA took over to the places now. You'll notice a steady decline since Arafat restated war. Second, I don't think you'll find a difference in malnutrition "and the like". Third, if you count Arab on Arab violence as some "existential threat" by Israel, you'll still being biased. Pals are regularly killed by each other, in clan fueds, religious fighting (Christians usually do the dying), assassinations and more. Most importantly, if you continue to blame Palestinian conditions on Israel, rather than a war Arabs declared in '48 and Palestinians officially joined in '65, you have the cart before the horse.
