    Palestinians who target Israeli civilians are indeed not moderates. They are extremists. But Palestinians who target israeli soldiers are not extremists. I don't have a problem with even a suicide attack against the idf. However, some of israel's supporters take offence when idf members - members of the occupying force - get killed. tony parkinson, of The Age newspaper here in Melbourne - he must be one of Peter SM's mates - about a year ago called the killing of a couple of idf members in an attack in Gaza an 'atrocity'. Where parkinson was coming from, I would have no idea. It may have been when Palestinian militia blew up a tank - a legitimate target if ever there was one. idf members who target Palestinian civilians are extremists, too. Where the two sides differ is that it is israel that is continuing to make the 'facts on the ground' that are making peace more unlikely, as israel uses the so-called security wall to grab more land and relentlessly expand its settlements. The Palestinians cannot even set up a caravan on their land in Bil'in without it being violently removed by the idf. And in Dov Weisglas's own words, the Gaza withdrawal is part of israel's unilateral plan to freeze the peace process and prevent even the possiblity of a Palestinian state. That's not a recipe for peace in my language. It means continuing conflict. All israel's responsibility.
