Israel profits by avoiding peace. That fact is indisputable. The number of settlers and settlements has been constantly rising for the past three decades. Any peace would end this expansion. Because of this, it is always in fashion for Israels right wingers (most of the nation) to find newer and more persuasive arguments to avoid peace. Still, in spite of all this effort, the excuses break down into just a few main categories: (1)Why focus on Israel? (2) We have no partner (3) The Palestinians don't want peace. Not only do these bogus excuses serve as reasons not to have peace, they serve as reasons to not even attempt peace. Now we have this article. The implication is that, since a Palestinian/Israeli peace won't fix all the mideast problems, it should not be a priority. I hereby award this thesis an F for content, an F for logic, and only a D for effort. Are people who go to such lengths to find reasons to avoid peace could paid for their efforts?
