So if the PA throws a stone, we should talk? If they shoot, we shouldn't shoot back? We broke the so called cycle of violence by pulling out. A cycle of peace would have been created had the PA responded in kind. But they responded with more violence, proving they don't want peace as much as we wish they did. Don't judge the PA based on our ideals. Judge them objectively by their actions. If IDF actions contradict the establish of a palestinian state, then what about palestinian actions? What have they done since the pullout to indicate that they really want a civil, peaceful, functioning society? Gaza has sunk to the depths since we pulled out, cause the palestinians let it. It's become gangs, warlords, terrorist groups and nothing more. And none of that is Israel's fault. When they prove they want a real, true, honest and decent, peaceful state, we will help them. Until then, stop blaming Israel for arab disingenuousness.
