Terrorism comes in many forms. Taking peoples' land and eroding their homeland is just another form. It is merely an attempt by Israel to continue to strike fear into the hearts of the Palestinians; erode the potential for a viable Palestinian state; and establish facts on the ground as a precondition for negotiations. True peace demands justice as a partner. As long as settlement construction continues in East Jerusalem, Israel's efforts towards peace are suspect. Israel is demonstrating its vicious control over the Palestinians. There is all the more reason for Abbas to be wary of Netanyahu and instead seek the support of strong nations that will sponsor and assist Palestine in receiving fair treatment in any negotiations.
