    Thank you for an insightful and well thought out piece. I think that under the Oslo years period before the current intifada life was better for the Palestinians yet they did launch an offensive against Israel and erased the peace that existed. What is clear to me is that the preinifada Oslo years was just a Hudna. The calm that was established was solely for establishing Israeli trust and a way of getting more concessions so that when the time for violence came and it did come then the Palestinians would be in a better position to carry out violent acts. I think it is true that strangling the Palestinians will cause them to gravitate more to the radicals like Hamas. However, it is also true that concessions as history has proven have only been seen as a sign of weakness and have been exploited by the enemy. I think the Qassam attacks will continue no matter what Israel does, but a defensive and offensive approach is best. Israel does not rejoice in killing innocents
