but what you gonna do with the smoke? Removing militant leaders from the scene is not going to squelch the anger in the Palestinian population. It was a dismal Eid el Fitr, without the usual family visits and celebrations for many people who simply did not want to deal with the hassle and humiliation of going through checkpoints to move about and visit relatives. The measures for easing up on the lives of Palestinians have been a drop in the bucket of what really needs to be done to help people in the West Bank begin to attain a normal life. Arresting and exiling militants is a cosmetic move that will only increase anger and hostility. Is there no one in the government with enough sense to see that this is going to accomplish exactly the opposite of what we want - quiet and security?
