GUEST,ifor BS: Israel Moves in. (1634* d) RE: BS: Israel Moves in. 15 Jan 09

To Teribus
I don't think the path to peace in the region will be attained by the unleashing of a river of blood and gore.The atrocities committed by the Israeli military are going to be remembered.

Secondly how will there be peace when a one state solution with all inhabitants having full democratic rights is rejected out of hand by the Israelis who see it as an end to the Zionist project?

But the Israelis have also made a two state solution unworkable because Israel has created facts on the ground in the West Bank by allowing/encouraging the settlement of around 500000 settlers ,many organised like armed paramilitaries in the occupied territories.

The land grab by the State and the settlers has been going on for years and is still going on...accompanied by shootings,arrests,demolition of houses,road blocks,lockdowns, beatings, the stealing of water supplies,grubbing up of orchards,and the building of the giant Apartheid Wall across Palestinian land.

This is no basis for any kind of solution that is acceptable.I don't think the Palestinians will accept living in a series of shrinking bantustans being ruled by their gun totin' Israeli masters and surrounded on all sides by Israeli territory . And those who are not locked into these bantustans will be imprisoned and humiliated in broken,poverty stricken Gaza, another giant prison.

I think the above is the prospect for Palestinians and the seeds for further conflict and carnage with Israel. And it is the Israeli criminal government which is responsible for the ongoing conflict.It keeps trying to bomb the Palestinians and for that matter the Lebanese into submission but it is getting harder and harder to win a military victory...and the sight of those dead and mutilated children murdered and maimed in their hundreds and thousands is long going to fuel world wide revulsion .
