    One of the reasons given for why Israel should not withdraw from the WB is because once the Palestinians get there hands on the land, they will fire all manner of rockets and projectiles at Israeli cities. So, in an effort to prevent them from firing rockets and projectiles at Israeli cities, Israelis go and build holiday resorts right next to the same Palestinians who will launch the rockets if the area is vacated. Surely, a little bit of logic would lead one to ask, if the Palestinians and their rockets are so dangerous, why go and live in between these popularly labeled terrorists? Aren't you basically moving closer to them while saying that if they come any closer to you, they will fire rockets at you? So what's the difference between you shortening the distance between you and them, and they shortening the distance between them and you? It's the same thing.
