    TERROR,TERROR,TERROR,THAT'S ALL WE SEEM TO HEAR AND READ ON TV,NEWSPAPERS ETC...BUT THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY.WE CAN LEARN MUCH ABOUT THE SITUATION JUST BY READING ABOUT THIS ISSUE ALONE.FROM A FOREIGN PERSPECTIVE,MEANING OUTSIDE ISRAEL AND THE OCCUPIED TERRITRIES,THERE IS A WIDELY HELD VIEW THAT IF A TRUE PALESTINIAN STATE WAS TO BE RECREATED AND PROSPER THEN ISRAEL WOULD NOT NEED TO HAVE SUCH SECURITY AT THE BORDERS. THREE SEPERATE CANTONS DO NOT CONSTITUTE A SOVEREIGN NATION,AND EVEN SO,HOW IS SUCH A COUNTRY EVER TO HAVE HOPE OF GAINING SOCIAL END ECONOMIC JUSTICE FOR IT'S CITIZENS.IT'S SIMPLY NOT FEASIBLE.THE PALESTINIANS AREN'T STUPID PEOPLE,THEY WOULD LIKE SOME OF OUR SO CALLED WESTERN DEMOCRACY,AND THIS IS NOT THE ANSWER.THE ARGUMENT ITSELF IS RIDICULOUS.THE PALESTINIANS ARE OPPRESSED AND THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY SHINING EXAMPLES.NOT ALLOWING THE FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT OF WHOLE POPULATION CENTRES IS OPPRESSION.IF ISRAEL IS INTERESTED IN PEACE THEN IT WOULD ACCOMODATE A FULL AND DEMOCRATIC PALESTINIAN STATE,AND NOT GIVE AS IT'S DOING A PIECEMEAL SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM.AS LONG AS ISRAEL KEEPS WITH THE POLICY IN THE OCCUPPIED LAND OF "SEARCHING AND KILLING ANY FORM OF PALESTINIAN DIPLOMACY" THEN SUICIDE BOMBS ETC..WILL CONTINUE TO BE A CONSEQUENCE OF THESE ACTIONS.THERE ARE NUMEROUS EXAMPLES OF THIS AROUND THE GLOBE AND WHEN REAL ACTIONS ARE TAKEN TO TACKLE THE REAL ISSUES,PEACE IS NEVER FAR BEHIND,IRELAND BEEN JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF THIS.AFTERALL,ALL ANYONE WANTS IS A FUTURE FOR THEIR CHILDREN,ONE WITH A CAR,A HOUSE,A FAMILY AND A JOB,BUT,WHEN THIS IS NOT FORTHCOMING THERE WILL ALWAYS,ALWAYS BE RESISTANCE.
