I see the apologists are out in force. @ PeterSM, yes Palestinian Leadership have their share of blame too and any loss of human life is abhorrent. However lets take your example and put it in perspective. In order for the occupation to end they have to negotiate? well they have been negotiating for since '68 and nothing has come of it, in fact the occupation has increased. so Logically that rules that out> You are also forgetting and ignoring that the occupied territories are not Israeli land according to International Law and an occupier cannot morally claim self defence, they are the ones breaking international law! this is a very simple and basic point. Israel are the ones evading the negotiating table, if they were serious about peace they would have endorsed Palestinian statehood at UN or at least used it to negotiate a more favourable outcome, but instead what do they do? they keep building settlements> even your biggest ally tried to explain this to you> but the apologist mindset is locked in, Israel is right no matter what it does, no matter what laws it breaks, no matter how many ships it captures by piracy in international waters, its all fine and everyone else is the problem. Common Sense Please!!!!!!
