    This is logical only from a sick point if view. So, what this author - and so many Israelis- say is: Israel wants to maintain its occupation; its control, its repression, and its exhaustion of Palestinian sources. If Palestinians moan or resist; they will be pressed too hard so they never moan or resist. If they try to fight back (though I certainly disapprove of some tools), they must be taught the lesson the hard way; by taking the most immoral choices. Morals are most relevant here because of the power Israel has to choose how to act. What about an alternative: Israel declares it no more wants to keep any of the territory it occupied in 1967, any of the Palestinian resources, or any of the parts of the regime of control and horror it has enforced. I mean a real deal, not Oslo hanky banky stuff! Palestinians will then have no reason to fight. Have anyone given a second to see how a Palestinian nationalist would put this?
