Inquiries and yet more inquiries. What are they good for, other than confirming much of what is already known? Many of them blame Israel for most of the Middle East's troubles. Others claim it's the Palestinians, with Hamas now featured as the local bad boy. Whatever the reason, it's safe to say much more than words or opinions will be needed to move this business forward toward any satisfactory conclusion. So, considering the dearth of available options, why not do it this way? http://yorketowers.blogspot.com Quicker than waiting for the umpteenth inquiry to apportion blame and then having the whole thing relegated to the back burner whenever the next round of violence and mayhem erupts. Cheaper than handing over millions in money and assets just to fuel more opportunities for continuing the conflict. Produces a definite end to the matter, with honour broadly satisfied on all sides. Also, a palpable feeling that the business has now been settled and it's all over bar the shouting. It will make us all look good; we were able to figure out the whole thing at long last and were then seen to take action, thus ending a saga that had looked well able to run on into the next generation. It will prevent the future becoming ever again hostage to the past. It will make some sense of all that's happened. It will work because that's what it's designed to do. So, in these matters of life and death, it seems we may have had the power to make a choice all along: we just didn't realise it.
