isn't cold peace better than no peace? is the lives of 2 people not worthy of such peace? who knows may what the future brings if u don't take the first step! u r not seers of the future unless u r prepasring urselves for more war. ur kind of thinking is what is keeping u from peace with isrl. and isrl is working to regain its rightful land. and yes they will keep their weapons on hand, because isrl is a threat to them. so quit assuming ur have exclusive rights to self defense. remember u came to their land not the other way around.
