    Take a look at Israel's settlement enterprise. The Israeli government and the Israeli people have been obsessed with settlements and settlers for many years. Israel is sending a message which speaks louder than words. Everybody knows that most, if not all of the settlements will have to go as part of any viable peace plan. In their usual dishonest and twisted fashion Israeli settlement building sends a message about Israel's view on peace. They are against peace. They can't even pause in the settlement expansion at the request of America, their great benefactor. In light of this, what should the Palestinians do? They have played the straight man in all manner of peace fakery. It becomes painfully clear that they only road to peace is the elimination of one side or the other. In the dawning age of WMD for all, the Palestinians will be on a level playing field with Israel. Who knows how it will end.
