Your insight into the conflict is both interesting and one with which i agree. Try to convince me though that history will view this conflict as a catalyst to eventual resolution and i cannot agree! My country was plagued with conflict for many hundreds of years and the greater the atrocity the farther we drifted from peace, History has demonstrated that dialogue not violence delivers ultimate resolution, as the only civilised democracy in the middle east i believe that israel has an obligation to pursue this avenue to the point of exhaustion, otherwise we can look to the future with a sense of foreboding.
