My dear , even if Israel made peace with the palestinians, do you think that the extremist elements in Palestine (hamas et al) and the neighbouring arab nations will allow that. Muslims seem committed to destroy Israel as a nation. Remember how they killed Anwar Sadat when he made peace with Israel.

Nobody has problems with the moderate section of muslim society. It is the extremists and the moderates seem to support the extremists covertly. It is like telling " I am not like them (Extremists) so I dont kill but I dont say that they are doing it wrong" .

When Israel was a mosquito infested swamp, arabs made money by selling land to settlers. When they developed it, Arabs wanted it destroyed. Why did Jordan or Syria or any other arab country not absorb these refugees ? They wanted to keep palestinians in their refugee camps like pigs. Israel is in a catch 22 situation...

Ask yourself sincerely , which extremist islamic organisation is ready for peace ? They have a single minded laser focused agenda, to kill any one and every one that they think to be their enemy. And about your religion it does preach about killing non believers, taking on their wives and property. maybe it was the practice in the medieval times. But is it relevant now ? Muslims simply dont realise this. Making enemies with the world will not help.

You cant fight a war and win it honourably beacuse you dont have the discipline to do it. So you take the easy way out and kill some innocent person at random and try to justify it. What if the non-muslim world kills tem muslims at random in retaliation for every life lost in a terrorist attack ? By your logic it will be justified. But you are simply wrong. It would be plain unjust and barbaric. You have to make a decision to shun violence. I know that it is very difficult to take a decision. But once you take that decision strategies will present by themselves. and Israel never invaded any body. it was the Arabs who invaded Israel each time.
