Unlike what you may think, people understand what is going on there.
Distance, makes us look at things in a different perspective though.
If I was not living in a peaceful place, and If I lived in fear, I would probably have different points of view.
But the fact that I would have points of view conditioned by the surrounding reality, would render those points of view less objective.
There is also another separation that must be considered.
There are Israelis that are actually against the positions of the Sharon government. He is under the influence of religious fundamentalist parties.
I think that maybe the influence of this Shinui party, may be of advantage. But a government with fundamentalists in it's ranks, is like a body with a cancer. You'd better remove it while it is time.
I don't know if Israel is still capable of doing that.
The position of Israel is actually strategic. The control of water in an otherwise desertic region is one of the advantages.
But even tiny, have you ever noted that Israel physically separated the Arab world into two pieces?
Ever thought that the "design" of the map of Israel created a nation that goes from the Mediterranean to the Red sea (an arm of the Indian ocean) because it reaches the gulf of Akaba?
So, the quantity of land is actually not an issue.
Israel is way out of line
Does not fulfill U.N. resolutions.
The country owns illegal weapons of MASS destruction (A.K.A. Atomic weapons).
Those weapons everybody knows Israel does not have in bunkers somewhere in the desert.
They occupy territories they shouldn't be occupying.
Even the Gaza strip was Egyptian, the Egyptians decided to donate it to a Palestine authority, and now Israel is in control.
And there are settlements in an Egyptian territory, which became Palestinian. Of course the settlers rushed to take the land over.
I am sure I wouldn't like a lot of foreigners in my country taking over and telling me there was some book they had, saying that this was their promised land, and telling me to go away to some country that could take me as a refugee, because my country was actually not mine, although my ancestors live here for centuries and centuries.
Is there somebody here that would like that?
Would you like that ?
Let's get serious.
No one, absolutely no one would accept that.
Why do the Palestinians have to accept what no people on earth would accept?
Why are the Palestinians different?
Can somebody please explain that to me ?
