War is the absence of peace. If Israel was not at war with the palestinians then all the leftists would not be babbling about the need to peace talks. Nothing wrong with facing reality--it only causes emotional anguish to face the truth, not real pain, and if you can't deal with the emotional pain of facing the truth, then ask a doctor to prescribe some anti-depressant meds. Repeat to yourself several hundred times a day---"the world is at war and there will be no peace short of the grave". The good news is that no matter what the level of violence and killing, the world is still almost certain to remain overpopulated.
