Ahmad, the sad thing is Israelis desperate for a quick fix to their eternal conflict would probably believe your meaningless sound bites. Fact is Israel has tried your approach. It has abandoned Lebanon and Gaza and what did it get for it? Missile attacks, terrorism, infiltrations and abductions of soldiers. Your solution is to give more??? I hope the majority of Israelis are not that suicidally stupid. Yuval Steinitz said it well. The solution is qualitative edge and deterrence vis-a-vis overwhelming and punishing force. Despite the world's view of the dead Hezbullah shields, what Israel did in Lebanon was very far from anything resembling the above principle. It was tepid, hesitant, confused and restrained. You want a better solution? The Palestinians should become Israel's dhimmis. Is that so unreasonable to you? After all that's what the Arab world seems to expect of Israel! If the Arabs say sorry to Israel, the Jews will be very happy to graciously accept their apologies.
