    The Pals' mindset is the problem. Peace has to be wanted on both sides, you said. I guess I read you correctly. What chance is there, please tell us, for an occupied stateless people - whose land is disputed to them by foreign settlements protected by a foreign army - to want peace and co-exist with the occupier? Do enlight us. "A phenomenon noticeable throughout history, regardless of place or period, is the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests." "Persistence in error is the problem. There is always freedom of choice to change or desist from a counter-productive course if the policy-maker has the moral courage to exercise it. Yet to recognize error, to cut losses, to alter course, is the most repugnant option in government." Historian Barbara Tuchman, twice winner of the Pulitzer Price for General Non-Fiction, in her "March of Folly - From Troy to Vietnam", 1984.
