Dear Paul: Let's get real. The removal of Palestinians through killing or replanting will not be tolerated by the world community; Israel has one of the world's strongest militaries and will not be pushed into the sea; the wall will not prevent mortar or other missile attacks; US support of Israel cannot be maintained indefinitely; controlling the lives of unwilling people can be destructive to the controllers as well; tit for tat actions lead to escallation; the Israeli economy cannot afford to maintain such a large standing military; destruction of the current Palestinian government will lead to anarchy, and nobody to negotiate with; and on and on. Turbulence in the mid-east is only likely to increase if constructive actions are not taken. What are they going to be, realistically, for Israel to survive as a democracy?
