    Time for Israel to talk to Hamas. Why? Becasue it is talk. It is not violent and no one dies as a result. Much better path at this point than the current alternative of bulldozing and killing. There is no question. There can be no peace in anything in life among human beings without dialogue. Failure to and in dialogue results in what we have now. Israel has a right to exist and so does Palestine. It is not a difficult concept. Israel has the power and might of the US behind it. After all it is our quasi 52nd state and our eyes and ears in the Mid East. The EUs as well. My guess is that Mossad played a huge role in the Iraq war intelligence. Not much they do not know. Therefore I personally have a hard time with Sharon's government. He not only started this intafada but he now is trying to end the hostility with what the world demands. Both Palestine and Israel have an absolute right to exist. They must both recognize each other. The years have taken it's toll. Opportunities have been squandered. This is what happens when folks usurp other families homes and more... It is a given. The onus has always been on Israel and The US... and The US seems to have put more effort into the process than Israel itself. I am very critical of Israel with a very good uinderstanding of the history and plight of jews for 2,000 years in Italy, Germany and all the world. It does not justify or excuse the current situation. The world is sick and tired. The Terrorist Ember or the Israel and Palestinian Issue is responsible for the deaths of 100's of thousands worldwide. All races.. All peoples. END IT!

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
