    If you ever visited the northern west bank (Shomron or Samaria) you would have noticed that it is hugely deserted, with vast tracts of land that belong to no-one. We go often, because it is on our doorstep and much more beautiful and free than the overpopulated coastal strip where we live, and jews and palestinians roam around freely. At the beginning of the second intifada, the main roads were attacked from the major Arab cities killing Israeli civilians, which is why security walls were erected. Now that there is quiet, and a half decent palestinian leadership, and actually a lot of prosperity (unlike in Gaza), I hope the walls will be brought down, and we can all coexist in the west bank and in the rest of Israel. Hopefully there will be a proper solution one day, but it will be very different to the automatically and badly written shallow diatribe that you are writing from the diaspora, which shows very little grasp of the reality or complexity of the situation.
