To you, the Palestinian electorate. You want war. You elect terrorists who have taken your society back 50 years to the days of "no negotiations, no recognition, no peace". You want war: you got war. Why did you vote for Hamas? You still don't accept Israel's right to exist,do you? And look where it got you now. Your lives are in ruin. Most of your leaders are in jail where they belong. Why didn't you accept Ehud Barak's offer at Camp David in 2000? He offered to end the occupation and support an independent Pal. state in 97% of the West Bank at all of Gaza. He even offered nearly all of Arab East Jerusalem. But Arafat who you backed walked out because he didn't get "right of return". You all know that would spell the death of Israel. That's why you want it. You want a Pal. majority in Israel. The Pals have national rights. So do the Israelis. The two state solution is the just solution. But that's not good enough for you. You want your own state but you want to take over Israel.
