What would it have cost the Palestinians to say, lets put away our differences for the sake of both our peoples? Arafat kept his people on the poverty line,because a desperate people will fight. A healthy population will not fight so easily. As far as Israel's artillery bombardments are concerned,they have every right,the Palestinians fire their qassams from heavily populated aereas. The death of innocent civilians on any side is always a tragedy.The fact that no one has been killed on the Israeli side is only through luck. The palestinians have tried their best. Mr levy your article serves no purpose but to defend the enemy.
