"It hasn't mounted already?
I'd advocate sending somebody impartial to keep the two apart, and provide a watchful eye. Maybe even build a few walls, if that becomes necessary. It's hard to expect that any invention would be completely impartial, but at least it could be less partial than the current situation.
Then, it would be easier to help people back on their feet, rebuild infrastructure, &c &c without the imminent threat of being blown up or bulldozed.
I firmly (perhaps naïvely) believe that if Palestinians had reliable housing, communications, water supply, education &c then there would be fewer maniacs willing to blow themselves up; and with a firmer border (hopefully, overseen by somebody impartial) and fewer suicide bombings, the IDF would be less likely to kill non-combatants or just raze their houses & infrastructure."
and yes, i dont been to be rude but you are naive. the arsb were given schools, had hosuing and communications, had an education and were in control of their autonomy. they have been offered 7 different arab states and have rejected them all.
under the mandate the arsbs were given the same chances as the jews but didnt take them. after 1948 those areas set aside for palestine were gobbled up by 2 arab states. after 1967 that land fell to the israelis.
the israelis didnt just stop people going to school, or stop them working, or deny them basic services nor have they done. in the early 1990s israel began tp pull out of the occupied areas, it pulled out fully. in 2000 it offered a state with east jersualem as its capital, economic aid etc etc and it was turned down.
and guess what? arab terrorism occured before 1948, after 1948, before 1967, after 1967, before oslo, after olso, before barak, after barak, before taba, after taba, before the roadmap, afetr the road map.
the political idelogy of these terrorists is the wholesale destruction of all jews living within the middle east. these people dont need to convert peple on the basis of israel accidentlly killing children or putting up road blaock. them tell them its their god given duty and to some young people if they are told its part of their faith they will accept it no matter what.
you could have a palestine, you could even have it larger than israel, hell you could even hand over the whole of jersulaem, scrap your army and give the arabs 100 trillion pounds and hamas, hezbollah, jihad, al-aqsa etc etc would still attack.
the reason why there is terrorism is because the arab leadership lead by yasser arafat has never clamped down on terrorists, it has been too sacred to take on hamas etc etc and would rather israel does it because it keeps them in power when they have experied their sell by date.
israels has had hawks and dovs as its leaders and every time terrorist attacks have occured.
it was agrued that if you pulled out military then the bombings would stop. they didnt.
it was agrued that if you gave east jersualem back, the bombings would stop, they didnt.
it was argued you needed to be nice to arafat and the bombings would stop, they didnt.
instead the palestinian people are living under a dictator who wont allow freedom of speech, destroys rivals and sides with terrorist groups because he is too scared to face them head on.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
