Palestine is not the battlefield, stop the media-event

Edward, I do not imagine a decisive Israeli military victory scenario in Palestine. That would not help at all. Palestine depends entirely on other people supporting them. It is with the supporters, formerly known as enemies, where the battlefield is. First and foremost the west should stop the supply of arms to Palestine by military force. That includes bombing production factories for rockets. As for the antisemitic propaganda broadcasts one should take out TV stations in the area. Do I really need to understand that Kennedy envisioned the space-programme to have satellites broadcast enemy propaganda. The west should stop the use of satellites to get this sort of propaganda to all those arab immigrants all over the planet. If that requires getting down the satellites, I recommend doing it.

If bankers in countries like Switzerland transfer terrorist money go after the bankers. Give lists of active terrorists to the surrounding countries and if they use airports in those countries shut down air traffic with them. Don't let people like Iran's president enter the USA to go to the UN. If there are people like Tariq Ramadan donating money to terrorist organizations, arrest him. The west must stop treating the Arab-Israeli-conflict like a global media-event and take it for what it is, a war.
