"Do you accept terrorism as a valid way of fighting the occupation?" Certainly armed resistance is a valid way of fighting Israeli occcupation and brutality. Why would the Palestinians NOT want to fight back? I am, however, totally opposed to violence against innocent civilans (on both sides). It's counter-productive and ineffective. The Palestinians should concentrate on trying to cripple the Israeli economy, paying particular attention to power supplies - oil pipelines, oil depots, power lines, gas pipelines, dock facilities, the two major oil refinery complexes at Haifa and Ashdod - that sort of thing.
