    Neither will appeasing the Arabs, neither will ignoring them. If we have a war, we will have another period of relative calm, with minor attacks, which wil have to pay a terrible price for - that is not peace If we make more concessions, we will have more rockets. Every concession made in the past has led to an increast in terrorist attacks, be they rockets, bus bombings, shootings, etc. That is also not peace. If we ignore them, there wil be status quo - that is also not peace. If we cut off their electicity, and have a REAL blockade of the strip, that will have a major effect of reducing rockets and other terror attacks, with no cost of Israeli lives or shekels! It will be a much more humane response than a war. But even here, it will only reduce the attacks, not stop them. This too, is not peace. How about we try something new. Instead of spending billions on the military, lets spend some money on the "palestinians". Let's give every single one of them a lump sum of money, and free transportation to anyone of the 22 other Arab countries. What will happen? These palestinians will get a fresh start in a new place without wars / violence or terrorism. They will be at home in muslim / arab countries. There NEW home countries, will get an influx of immigrants WITH MONEY, great for their economies. The violence in Israel will end. Everyone benefits. THAT IS PEACE
