The article ignores the reason behind the Israeli rule over Palestinians. Despite deceptive promises the Palestinian Arab polity has never squarely committed to respecting the right of Israeli Jews to security and self-determination. When we ceded territory to the Palestinian Authority in the 1990's and offered Arafat statehood, we were rewarded with a terror campaign against our civilians which killed 1000. Our withdrawal from Gaza was rewarded with a sustained barrage of missiles. Until the Palestinians are willing to reconcile themselves to the ideas that Jews also have rights in "Historic Palestine" and to self-determination, there is no alternative but for us to use force. The "occupation" is the result, not the source of the problem.
