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.

That's a scenario so unlikely, Jeremy, that, should it actually happen, the foundations of the universe would crumble into dust. And then where would we all be?

Personally i think the best outcome would be for the state of israel to swallow the whole palestine. Israel's government is just better than gaza's.
