    The fact that there is a wide sentiment around the world that if the Palestinian's had their own state Israel would not need to take so many security measures is meaningless. There could be a wide-spread opinion that red is blue and blue is red but would that make it so? No. What makes something meaningful is if it is backed by evidence, and nothing backs this "wide spread" claim. In fact evidence supporting the exact contrary claim exists. Israel evacuates Gaza and grants it to the Palestinians. Sure this is not the end of the issue, but it sure would have been nice if they had not used this opportunity to shoot rockets from Gaza into Israel, no? This only shows one thing. It shows that if and when Palestinians are given a state, Israel will not only be required to continue using security measures but it will most likely need to boost the level of these security measures. I say all those around the world that have this believe which you claim, Sean, are simply worng. Yes it is possible, that the majority can be wrong and the minority can be right. Just as Socrates, who died for that very reason.
