    Some people here write that peace would be a cheaper option. Their thinking is wrong, because they seem to think that peace can make peace alone. They don't see Pals have responsabilities in the situation. They seem to think that if Israel would say "yes" to what Pals ask for, it would be very nice... They think that leaving the WB would bring peace to Israel... Israel must both look for peace AND be always ready for armed self-defense and retaliation. If Israel just looks for peace, without caring enough about its citizens'defense, Israel may have to pay later a very expensive cost if the peace is not reached (for instance, if the "right" of return -R o R- of Pals IN Israel is not given up by Pals leaders and by a majority of Pals). Moreover, if Pals know they can hit harshly Israelis, they won't even think about relinquishing the R of R. Therefore : if you want peace, prepare BOTH for peace and for war -and let the ennemy knows it, so that he can choose with a maximum of awareness-
