Mr Gulati, It would be great if you be more concerned about ur beloved India and the Islamist problem there rather than coming up with absurd idea's on how to fix the Middle East. Just as the India-Pakistan conflict is not about Kashmir or any other cause but the historical hatred of Muslims for polytheists-the last surviving ones after waves of Muslim attacks being the Hindus, the Middle-East conflict is not about Palestine as most Arabs would like everybody to believe.

It is about the built in anti-semitism amongst Muslims which makes a Muslim from Pakistan to Canada share the same hatred for Israel/Jews. It is anathema for them to imagine a Jewish state in the midst, controlling the land which has the Al-Aqsa mosque. Even if Palestine is established there will be continous demand for more land while the resistance will continue. Additionally Palestianians would start demanding resources from the West on the basis of the defunct theory that unemployment/joblessness creates terrorism. In that case, India/China/Africa should have the bulk of the world's terrorists which is not the case.

Living in India I figured out that most Indians live in a permanent fear of a Muslim backlash if they take a step that "hurts" minority sentiments. So what happens is evident in Kashmir. Muslim's continously increase their demands by blaming everything thats wrong on the majority, while the government fears that any wrong step would alienate not only them but other Muslims searching for an opportunity to be alienated/victimized to blow up a couple of places. This is a never ending cycle, which has been perpetrated on the Indian Hindu population by Muslims, but the blame for it goes on modern INdia's leaders esp M.K Gandhi & Nehru, alongwith leftist minded people like you who view everything in shades of gray even though the truth is evident.
