A serious scholar ought to make a study about the relationship between economic opportunities in the West Bank and Gaza vs. acts of violence. Brown suggests that more economic opportunity will calm violence, but recent history contradicts this. Pals in Gaza consistently attack the crossings for vital supplies for their own society that need to pass in and out of Gaza. Their attacks on the industrial zone that provided many jobs for Gaza were so deadly that the factories had to relocate. Tens of thousands of Pals used to have jobs in Israel- before the intifada. It seems to me that economic opportunity has had no impact on Pal terrorism.
