Laxian Key (page 6)

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.

This is nonsense.

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.

Many thanks for your appreciation, Frank. I can only hope that the KEY will result in an end to the Israeli-Palestinain conflict and all such others thereafter.

I follow along on the comments in the Haaretz, and I appreciate your effort in educating the dogmatic Israelis from the far right. Keep up the good work.

The difference with the KEY, Clif, is that it is autonomous, the benefits that humanity would derive from its use making it the go-to formula in ANY conflict.

You have an interesting concept, but given that the United Nations was created to perform a similar function...well, it hasn't worked. Power prevails.
