    I've been critical of Israeli governments for years with regards to not doing enough in the diplomatic sphere with resolving the Palestinian - Israeli conflict - before Haaretz.com existed! Now, the security matters, I know little about but do know for a fact, that the Palestinians have not relinquished utilizing the use of terror, (as these terror groups still exist) whether Qassams or otherwise, to counter Israel's activities and other grievances against Israel. What justifies continuing violence beyond even the years it took the Western Allies to counter Nazism - 6 years? In addition, we are not in the era of post WWII and the British Mandate either. In particular to the Palestinians, this has been going on for over 46 years. From an international legal standpoint, the settlements are not annexed and therefore are occupying lands remaining disputed. It's through diplomatic channels which it must be resolved. But life is sacred and the Jewish people need to have guarantees that the terror will stop and acceptance of the Jewish State is also fundamental to peace. Israel's security measures are responding to the aggregation of violence towards it since its inception in 1948 by international consensus.
