All said and done, this makes very little difference, Justy. Look at it from the other side of the fence. If your say.... mother, father, 7 brothers, 1 sister and your dog was killed, would you mind whether the enemy targeted you or the terrorist holding quarters next door to you? Matter of the fact is that Israel managed to kill lots of civilians with non too subtle weapons. It's like a lazer-guided atomic bomb. The atomic bomb managed to fly in the window of the terrorist and killed him instantly after igniting on photo-recognition. Sadly though, the rest of the town was also sent back to the stone age... You die anyway. I admit I overdrew the comparison a bit. But sometimes you have to do this to shed another light over the issue. Sadly though, Israel used fuel bombs, which are just about as subtle as anything else in the wmd category. They shouldn't have, they damn well know it and now they're getting what they asked for, condemnation from the Western world. I, for one, don't believe this necesserally. I really think every last single Isreali could destroy or turn in anything up to and including their airguns and be just about as safe. Yes, the Palestinians will smell a minor chance of victory (in that, nothing will change, I suppose) - But who would really dare to invade and kill all Jews. Please remember that the last regime to try this, failed very horribly in the end. But that's not the reason. The reason is that whoever touches Israel, especially when unarmed, is touching the US, with equal or greater force. And the US will strike back. With force. Greater then with wich touched. After all, this is Isreal, we're talking about. But I implied a UN force, not the handing in of weapons. You can have weapons - maybe to defend yourself (Isreali's seem quite fond of this - Palestines aren't allowed anyway). The Isreali army remains in existance. As would the Palestinian defense forces. The point is that whoever hurts the other gets punnished. And that's it. No more "you did X to us so we do Y to you", in which Y>X. I see no other path to peace other then "let's build a wall around Israel, give them all a lot of weapons and ammo, and let's see what remains in 5 years time". I would like to conclude by saying that, for future reference, if a group of people demand a country, occupied by a different nation, on a 2000 year old claim, let's go ahead with that. Even if this particular group of people suffered a great loss during a war or if they have a great lobby with one of the mightiest nations in the world... We've done that once - and it failed. Miserably.
