    "No amount of reality checking (terrorist attacks or Kassams) can disuade them from the error of their ways. Still they continue to bang their heads against a brick wall wondering why their heads hurt." Jane, You ought to turn that statement around and maybe you will discover a truth about yourself and the right. Still, how can you endorse the concept of freedom amd liberty for all and accept how Israel is brutally trying to impose its will upon the Palestinian population? It will never work. Even a bird will fight for its right to flight. So give up banging your head against a wall and accept more force isn't just going to neither the idea of defeating the enemy. Besides that kind of thinking of defeating the enemy is outdated today and embrace what Abraham Lincoln said "I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends." Now hasn't that worked well for the Germans, Japanese and the Vietnamese and the Chinese. Can you imagine your daily life in your home without one of their gadgets or indeed riding on the highways encountering one of their cars. So Jane wake up to this new reality! It avoids all that blood and guts. You and Israelis needs to honest and fair about the half truths and twisted truths you have bought into and which have become you. I suggest you read Bradley Burston column, The Lie of Victory in the Middle East. I didn't see your name on the talk back. Perhaps you avoided this truth too. But I suggest you reread it a couple of times to get the full scope of the 10 Top lies We Live By which Bradley discusses. Thanks anyway, Dutch P.S.
