Squaring the Circle...

Scenario:
The dynamic of the whole situation now changes markedly. Israelis, through violence and the like, would be seen to be promoting, even ratifying the Palestinian cause while, similarly, Palestinians might well be perceived as carrying forward and cementing the dream of a permanent Jewish homeland; prospects guaranteed to give even the most militant in either camp considerable pause for thought. 'He brought home the other sides' bacon for them' - quite possibly the least coveted obituary of martyr, soldier and politician alike. Very salutary though if a permanent end to these hostilities is ever to emerge from the present fog of contention.

The tribe will complete the dispossession & the Erasure of the Palestinians. In Deir Yassin the face & spirit of the hostile conquest was visible. Such is life.

John Cronin 16.03.2022 01:03

And yet, within the span of 70 years and more, such complete dispossession and erasure has not been possible. How will the next 70 years be any different?

This is nonsense.

John 10.03.2016 15:29

And continuing this conflict, Brian, without any real hope of escaping from its clutches is not nonsense?
A lot of future dead people might not agree with that

Hate your phrasing, ascribing "violence" to Israel but no similar denunciation for seventy years of "Palestinian" attacks... I call bullshit on your orientation

As far as I can judge, Liz, violence is endemic to both sides and has been so for several generations. Whether it is Israeli or Palestinian is beside the point.

They were also given a prison.

And, as in most prisons, it is generally accepted that many of the inmates seek to break out by whatever means are available.

Yes well they were given Gaza. They promised to make it into another Singapore. Instead another hell on earth.

Are you implying that mankind should stick with a formula that's 2000 years old? Human survival is linked to its evolution; new and not old methods are needed

UN has done that repeatedly. Israel will have to be driven out by force of violence as the Romans did. Their 2000 year solution beats your fantasy every time.
