This is one of the most lucid articles I have read in a mainstream newspaper. The arrogance and the carnage committed by the american administration in Iraq, and through the last several decades in several other countries around the globe clearly engender legitimate anger among its victims. Terrorism is the regrettable choice exercised by some people to vent their anger. Their choice is misguided, and, let me make this crystal clear, inexcusable. Innocent people suffer, and no matter how deeply rooted the anger is, there is no justification for the use of terror. Nevertheless, to deal with terror one must understand its causes, and one such cause (not the only one) is the use of force by imperial (American) powers. And with respect to Israel, will evacuation of the West Bank eliminate terror? Probably not, but it will enable Israel to coalesce with progressive Palestinians to combat it. Continued occupation will only breed continued, justifiable anger.
