I've always love the way people living thousands of kilometers away, people who have never been to a place, never spoke to local people, never learned the history, culture or nature of the people involved, have all the answers to a conflict. It's never been clear to me whether these people suffer from an overabundance of idealism, transfer their own ethics, morals and culture to others rather than try to understand, or if they're just plain naive. My only suggestion to "The Pragmatist" above and others like him/her is to do some homework and learn about the subject before they come to their erroneous conclusions. People with opinbions like this are not solving anything and they often become part of the problem--witness the misguided "Free Palestine" flotilla activists who let themselves be used as a cover for terrorism last year.
