Danny Rubinstein is right - and not your pig-headed responders who between them do not share one iota of common sense. Contrary to what racist insults are being aimed at the Palestinians, even through ceasefires declared and observed by Hamas, the assassinations and incursions went on. There were no suicide bombers before Baruch Goldstein carried out his massacre in Hebron. Practically every suicide bombing was preceded by targeted killings of Palestinian leaders, or a series of killings and incursion by the IDF - with full knowledge that there would such a response. The IDF and Sharon were willing to sacrifice Israelis in order to keep the war ongoing and to continue with killings and settlement expansion . If a total truce is declared in the West Bank, and the incursions stopped, and the curfews and road block lifted, there is no doubt that would lead to quiet. But that is not what the IDF and Mossad want. Israel does not want peace, or they would have negotiated it long ago!
