Mr. Strenger, the community of which you speak is powerless and that is a relaity which you must face. You cannot have your cake and eat it as well. Where is this "community" of like minded people who understand the injustice of the status quo? How effective have they been in bringing about social or political change? Can they develop a program, an agenda, that is not overwhelmed by a paralyzing sense of victimhood and mistrust of the outside world? If this is an inbred national characteristic then how can you expect to live in the international community. And in turn, how can the rest of the world relate to you except out of an impenetrable sense of guilt that allows the worst excesses of Israel to occur without any accountability? Sari Nusseibeh called for a two state solution back in the 1980s and his plan formed in conjunction with representatives from the Likud was denounced by Israel. Israel has no intention of achieving a two state solution. Apartheid is inevitable and internal violence between gangs of judeo terrorists and the kulturkampf between religious extremeism and the secular majority will pull apart whatever unity you have achieved. The Palestinians need nothing more than forbearance and patience. Zionism as an ideology has solved nothing and the fruit is in the present for all to see.
