If Israel has been playing nice I would hate to see nasty. When you look at the number of Palestinians murdered, maimed, tortured, imprisoned, dispossessed and abused it amounts to one of the most brutal and vicious occupations and colonisations in modern history and certainly in terms of a supposedly democratic state. Which bit of 'nice' do you mean or does the word have a different meaning in Israel? Bullets, bombs, barricardes, apartheid walls, demolished homes, dead children, the ill, young, old, newborn dying at Israeli checkpoints? More than 10,000 Palestinians imprisoned, most without charge and thousands of them children. Israel has been a 'mad bull' in the 'china shop' of Palestine for more than half a century and the frightening thing (for Israel's future anyway) is that you and others see this as 'playing nice.' It is why I and so many others really do despair for Israel. With supporters and denialists like yourself she really is doomed.
