    The first part of this comment is well presented and the facts are unarguable. One cannot lay ALL the blame for the acts of these various extremists at Netanyahu's door. I also agree that nothing IS black and white - ever in human affairs, and this includes Israeli-Arab relations. However, when the language becomes needlessly coarse and vulgar, the reasoning slips also. It IS precisely because Gideon IS concerned about Israel that he argues in these terms. His point is that provocation and violence, from the "stronger" Jews against the "weaker" Arabs, which is also an unarguable fact (politically and militarily), will never solve the problem and do not lead to long term security for Israel and Israelis. All Netanyahu does is kick the ball down field - he has yet to substantively confront the need to talk seriously to the other side, to MAKE REAL LONG TERM PEACE. Joy - you seem to miss this point
