What I can't phantom is why the terrorism persists with the Palestinian extremist groups when they've been given opportunities to join the political arena and accept Israel as the Jewish State in the ME? Their identity with terrorism has perpetuated the conflict because look how things have escalated beyond the ME. I think the boycott comparison is not attributed in a fair way because once again we see the economic boycott being used internationally or attempted in some cases as a result of the failed diplomatic channels. Swiss, you are right we have bigoted people on both sides and it takes a long time to change worldviews but fear of survival accompanied by ignorance of the facts go hand in hand with racism. I don't think that's the applicable argument here because from the start, Israel's capture of the WB territories in 1967 was to exchange them for acceptance of the Jewish State/peace and the Government's fault in settling should not have equated the use of terror in response. It's an international legal issue which should have been resolved through diplomatic channels. And that's how it will be resolved in the end because violence does not win friends ultimately.
