I voiced the following opinion and am confused why Haaretz refused to publish it: "Now that acts of violence have almost entirely disappeared..." This is an interesting comment in this forum, because the implications are rather clear. If we are to assume as so many commentators have readily remarked that Israeli expansion within the West Bank, construction in East Jerusalem, closure of Gaza, rather stern rhetoric with regards to the North, and a variety of other "abuses" - then the Palestinians and Arab neighbors are as angry, if not more so, than ever before. -Cast Lead = success? -Separation barrier = success? One thing is for sure, terrorism, Muslim and Jewish, increases in effectiveness and in scope during serious peace efforts. Who will be willing to sacrifice? Who will be willing to throw their ego's away for the sake of something real? More than ideas are at stake. I hope that even journalism can understand that...
