    Thanks for your candor, Sam. Your concept of the nature of the conflict is only partly correct, yet it reveals the real root of the problem. As an advocate of peace based on the 1967 borders, I, and thoughtful people world-wide, including the staff at Ha'aretz are pro-peace, as much the peace of Israelis as that of Palestinians. The Occupation and creeping annexation of the West Bank, as earlier in Gaza, was based upon YOUR ideology, the fallacy in your analysis, that the returning Jews, essentially foreigners, had no obligation to respect the rights of the idigenous population. Yes, there has always been a minority of Jews in Palestine, at peace with their neighbors. The ideology of lack of respect for other's property, their land, is basically religious, and religouslsly flawed. Read Hans K. LaRondelle's "The Israel of God in Prophecy", www.amazon.com .
